Unable to get on with her future until she reconciles her past, Clare breaks off her engagement.Unraveling the mystery is like trying to sculpt fog-until the first piece of the puzzle unexpectedly drops into place: Clare's birth mother, Lily Gundersen, was murdered in Grand Rapids.Lily's murder was one of the most talked-about events in the town's history, but no one is talking now.

The rise of innovative firms in emerging market economies is an increasingly topical issue. However, the literature has lagged behind in helping us understand this phenomenon. Addressing this gap, the book draws on a variety of firm-level experiences across a range of key countries, sectors, and institutional contexts. Despite the obvious differences, the book finds a commonality in these experiences: they have all been influenced by shifts in the institutional, technological, and policy environment, in particular by the opening up of emerging market economies over the past three decades, and the consequent increase in international business interactions. Across the different countries surveyed in Asia and Latin America, the book argues that firm level innovation has been strongly influenced by capabilities that had previously been built up in a relatively closed environment. However, in the current more open environment, it is suggested that innovation among firms also reflects differences in these national historical contexts, as well as in the different forms of interaction with international business that have subsequently emerged. This book is a valuable resource for academics, researchers, and graduate students in international business and technology management.

Asian Eclipse Exposing the Dark Side of Business in Asia Asia was a shining star in the world economy for most of the 1980s and 1990s. The secrets of its success were often a subject of intense debate. Plaudits cited Japanese economic power, Confucian work ethics, the freeing of China's markets, Eastern ingenuity and the powerful overseas Chinese guanxi networks. Critics were dismissed as ignorant of Asian values. But behind the facade lay a darker, more sinister truth. In this remarkable account, leading analyst Michael Backman tears away the myths of Asian business and reveals the dark side of the Asian success story. From endemic corruption to rampant cronyism, Asian Eclipse is a tale of capitalism gone sour, it names the perpetrators and offers timely advice on what is really needed for Asia to clean up its act. It will remain an indispensable guide to the complexities of corporate Asia for years to come. Highlights include: * China - rising star or black hole? * Japan - high-level corruption, organized crime and poor corporate governance * Indonesia - the ultimate victim of Soeharto's rampant cronyism * Donorgate - President Clinton's campaign funds and the Asian connections * Corporate Asia - What really happens to shareholders' money "Mr Backman's great achievement is to answer the really important questions about why the Asian crisis erupted. This book uncovers a great deal which Asian companies and governments would like to remain under wraps."
