From the Back Cover:

Few business people will be untouched by international marketing in the new millennium. And those who do not venture overseas themselves will inevitable compete at home with foreign firms and brands. New technologies, of which the Internet and World Wide Web are only the beginning, are driving companies of all sizes, shapes and persuasions down the global road. Despite the availability of these new technologies, the key to success remains the building of human relationships.

This has been largely ignored by business schools, and international business people have simply followed their intuition. In the future, that will not be enough. This is the first book which applies the biological sciences to understanding what works and why - and how firms can improve.

Companies who will succeed will be those with better insights into how their organizations really work and the relationships which drive them.

The Silk Road offers a new perspective on how the international marketer adds value to the organization. One that is as relevant to small businesses as large multinationals. It maps a path that takes account of the Social Information, Learning and Knowledge - SILK - and the human factors - PASSION - required to build successful business worldwide.
