Intercultural competencies in China focuses on one of the economically most important and - at least from a western point of view - culturally obscure markets: China is the second largest economy by nominal GDP and the largest by purchasing power parity. At the same time, China has one of the world=s oldest cultures and is the cradle of the most influencing philosophical approaches, which still tremendously impact all spheres of Chinese society. Due to that, business in China is - directly or indirectly - influenced by a distinct Chinese pragmatism, networking (Guanxi), the concept of face as well as the idea of business as a battlefield. Knowledge in Chinese culture and negotiation practices constitutes a key factor and increases success rates of business transactions. With this book, the authors close the gap between literature of purely academic interest on the one hand and common guidebooks on the other. Intercultural competencies in China offers a comprehensive installment of topics that are crucial in understanding the underlyings of cultural differences, what makes it necessary to read for business and private purposes, when dealing with China. In spite of the academic basis all essays are on a comprehensive reading level.

International Management and Intercultural Communication consists of cases of direct observation and personal involvement in a wide variety of communication challenges in international management settings, and discusses them in terms of management theories.

The book is presented in two volumes. Volume 1 contains case studies concerning different aspects of international management and intercultural communication in business, marketing and politics. Volume 2 deals with cases of international management in social and educational settings.
Filled with mirages, hallucinations, myths, mental puzzles, and the fantastic, the contemporary experimental fiction of the Chinese avant-garde represents a genre of storytelling unlike any other. Whether engaging the worn spectacle of history, expressing seemingly unmotivated violence, or reinventing outlandish Tibetan myths, these stories are defined by their devotion to theatrics and their willful apathy toward everything held sacred by the generation that witnessed the Cultural Revolution. Jing Wang has selected provocative examples of this new school of writing, which gained prominence in the late 1980s. Contradicting many long-cherished beliefs about Chinese writers—including the alleged tradition of writing as a political act against authoritarianism—these stories make a dramatic break from conventions of modern Chinese literature by demonstrating an irreverence toward history and culture and by celebrating the artificiality of storytelling. Enriched by the work of a distinguished group of translators, this collection presents an aesthetic experience that may have outraged many revolutionary-minded readers in China, but one that also occupies an important place in the canon of Chinese literature. China’s Avant-Garde Fiction brings together a group of exceptional writers (including Raise the Red Lantern author Su Tong) to the attention of an English-speaking audience. This book will be enjoyed by those interested in Chinese literature, culture, and society—particularly readers of contemporary fiction. Contributors.
