9780062316578: Chinese Rules: Mao's Dog, Deng's Cat, and Five Timeless Lessons from the Front Lines in China

From the author of the acclaimed ‘Mr. China’ comes another rollicking adventure story – part memoir, part history, part business imbroglio – that offers valuable lessons to help Westerners understand China.

In the twenty-first century, the world has tilted eastwards in its orbit; China grows confident while the West seems mired in doubt. Having lived and worked in China for more than two decades, Tim Clissold explains the secrets that Westerners can use to navigate through its cultural and political maze.

Picking up where he left off in the international bestseller ‘Mr. China’, ‘Chinese Rules’ chronicles his most recent exploits, with assorted Chinese bureaucrats, factory owners, and local characters building a climate change business in China. Of course, all does not go as planned as he finds himself caught between the world’s largest carbon emitter and the world’s richest man. Clissold offers entertaining and enlightening anecdotes of the absurdities, gaffes, and mysteries he encountered along the way.

Sprinkled amid surreal scenes of cultural confusion and near misses are smart myth-busting insights and practical lessons Westerns can use to succeed in China. Exploring key episodes in that nation’s long political, military, and cultural history, Clissold outlines five Chinese rules, which anyone can deploy in on-the-ground situations with modern Chinese counterparts. These Chinese rules will enable foreigners not only to co-operate with China but also to compete with it on its own terms.

Product Description:

From the author of the acclaimed ‘Mr China’ comes another rip-roaring adventure story – part memoir, part history, part business imbroglio – that offers valuable lessons to help Westerners understand China.

In the twenty-first century, as China grows more confident, there’s a hunger in the West to understand what makes this immense country tick. Tim Clissold has lived and worked there for more than two decades, and in Chinese Rules he draws on his experience to reveal secrets that Westerners can use to navigate through its cultural and political maze.

Picking up where the international bestseller ‘Mr China’ left off, the gripping narrative chronicles Clissold’s adventures with Chinese bureaucrats, factory owners and local bigwigs as he struggles to build a climate change business in China. He soon finds himself caught between the world’s largest carbon emitter and the world’s richest man, and his story is peppered with entertaining and enlightening anecdotes that highlight the absurdities and mysteries, but also the rewards, of doing business in China.

Exploring key episodes in China’s long political, military, and cultural past, Clissold outlines five key Chinese Rules that anyone can deploy on the ground with their modern Chinese counterparts. These Chinese Rules will equip foreigners not just to co-operate better with China but to compete better as well.

Product Description:

'Mr China' was a story of China in the 90's when, against the odds, peasant entrepreneurs outwitted millionaire investment bankers and taught them the hard way that China doesn't play by anyone else's rules. Two decades later, China's role as struggling underdog is firmly a thing of the past. The world has tilted eastwards in its orbit; China grows confident as the West is mired in debt.

Part memoir, part history, this story of building a climate-change business in China shows how knowledge of traditional Chinese thought can provide a framework for Westerners to understand modern day China. Drawing on key episodes in China's recent history, it explores the Five Chinese Rules that can enable foreigners not only to cooperate with China but also to compete with it on its own terms.

China now has a key role in addressing most of the world's economic and environmental problems; only by understanding China better can we hope to live in harmony with each other and with nature.
