Hongkongitis is ... an incurable affliction that causes one to secretly love Hong Kong while complaining loudly about it. While everyone else in Hong Kong was out doing real jobs, writer and cartoonist Larry Feign put together this collection of true but ridiculous facts, observations and stupid scientific theories about the most hyperventilating, oddly loveable city on earth. Read irrefutable proof that ... Hong Kong is actually located in France; There's a scientific explanation for why people shout "Wah!" every time a flashbulb goes off; Chinglish is the New World Language; The Vatican should relocate to Kwai Chung; A baby's IQ determines the size of her future apartment; Every person in the world is Chinese; Only psychotics should visit Hong Kong doctors... No one is immune from Hongkongitis!

There are a lot of reasons why companies go global. A particular foreign market may present a greater profitability opportunity than the local market of the business. Perhaps, the business has reached the tipping point in its export business and the market has grown large enough to merit an additional manufacturing facility or partner in another country. Maybe access to skilled, lower-cost workers is an attraction. Possibly setting up a local shop in a foreign market will help circumvent trade barriers that are constraining the company’s growth. The book is for small to medium enterprises (SME), a business that has grown beyond the “start-up venture”. The SME would be an ongoing business, with employees, receivables, and payables. It has a business growth plan, and as the manager, you know what business you are in and have the resources to expand. SMEs typically do not have a cadre of specialists, particularly where logistics and trade compliance are concerned. Those duties are most likely being added to existing staff with similar domestic responsibilities. However, realize that global is not the same as local business, it is outside of common knowledge and there are matters that managers need to understand better so they do not make serious mistakes in the process of going global.

While there is extensive data on the experiences of women working in managerial positions in Britain, there is a dearth of such information in Hong Kong. Consequently much of our understanding and beliefs about these women's lives are based on issues that concern women in the West, such as subordination and the struggle for equal rights. There is also a widespread belief that women have made more progress in improving their position in Britain than Hong Kong. Using interviews, surveys and existing documentation, this book illustrates that these perceptions do not adequately explain the situation of women managers in Hong Kong. On the contrary, research shows that Hong Kong women managers enjoy a relatively smooth career path while those in Britain often experience downward occupational mobility and breaks in their careers. Through comparing the stories of women managers in Hong Kong and Britain and exploring how culture shapes their tales, Common Careers, Different Experiences urges us to revise our perceptions of women's experiences.

In the final chapter of this volume, the authors refer to the pedagogical vantage points offered by narrative inquiry, an apt comment that encapsulates the volume s purpose and its spirit. As an increasing number of people throughout the world and from a broad range of disciplines are turning to narrative as a research methodology, this volume is timely in its focus on the learning and teaching of this approach. The contributors to the volume, all narrative scholars themselves, write about the creative and challenging pedagogical activities that they use in order to enable others to learn about and do narrative research. The volume will be of particular interest to those teaching narrative research methodologies at both undergraduate and postgraduate level in the social sciences, medical sciences and the humanities. The contributions from Hong Kong, Israel, Europe and North America, all reflect critically on the rich complexities of using and teaching narrative in those contexts and attend closely to the diverse constituencies of their learning communities."
