Easternisation Book Description:

'A masterly account...the best survey of global affairs I have read for some time' Sunday Times WITH A NEW PREFACE BY THE AUTHOR The West’s domination of world politics is coming to a close. The flow of wealth and power is turning from West to East and a new era of global instability has begun. Easternisation is the defining trend of our age – the growing wealth of Asian nations is transforming the international balance of power. This shift to the East is shaping the lives of people all over the world, the fate of nations and the great questions of war and peace. A troubled but rising China is now challenging America’s supremacy, and the ambitions of other Asian powers – including Japan, North Korea, India and Pakistan – have the potential to shake the whole world. Meanwhile the West is struggling with economic malaise and political populism, the Arab world is in turmoil and Russia longs to reclaim its status as a great power. We are at a turning point in history: but Easternisation has many decades to run. Gideon Rachman offers a road map to the turbulent process that will define the international politics of the twenty-first century.

Easternisation Book Description:

What can developing countries learn from the phenomenal success of Japanese manufacturing? Not the application of capital-intensive imported automation technologies, but instead the use of a radically new set of management techniques. These revolutionise the organisation of work, require different factory layouts, alter the scheduling of production through the factory and change the relationship with suppliers and customers. It might be thought that these new management techniques require the high levels of education and training found in the Japanese labour force. But this book - based upon studies of firms implementing these new management techniques in a range of developing countries in Asia, Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa (as well as the UK and the USA) - shows that considerable gains can be achieved even in low-income countries with poor levels of human resource development. These management techniques improve the performance both of the implementing firms and the overall economy. But success is not automatic and many firms fail in their attempts to introduce these new managerial techniques. Based upon the results of primary research the author argues the case for actively promoting the rapid diffusion of these techniques and identifies policy implications for governments, management and labour. Moreover, as the research shows, success cannot be achieved by trying to replicate the social relations used by the Japanese. A new path has to be identified, one which builds on the specific cultural and political experience of individual firms and countries, and one which confronts the need to forge a new path of social development.
