ABSTRACT. Interest in Asian business and management practices developed during the Japanese business emergence in the 1980s. The rise of the Asian tigers in the early 1990s and the emergence of China and India in global business affairs during the last decade have kept up the momentum of interest. This paper contemplates the question as to whether specific Asian paradigms of business and management actually exist. The author takes a look at Confucianism, Sun Tzu’s military strategies, Buddhism, and Islam as possible paradigms. However upon a superficial look at these paradigms, there appears more influence on Western management thought than Asian management thinking, excepting Confucianism. pp. 92–124

Keywords: Asian management, management theory, Sun Tzu, Confucius, Buddhism, Islam
