Dear Ma'am or Sir: Please distribute the following Call For Chapters (CFC) link throughout your subscribership at the Academy of International Business of Michigan State University at your earliest convenience: http://www.igi-global.com/publish/call-for-papers/call-details/1908 *Please note there is an international business perspective related to this CFC.* Additional Information: Editors Bryan Christiansen, Chairman (PryMarke LLC, USA) Gülşah Koç (Yildiz Technical University, Turkey) Call for Chapters Proposals Submission Deadline: April 20, 2016 Full Chapters Due: *May 20, 2016* Submission Date: July 20, 2016 Introduction The Asian region has plenty of extant literature, especially on a country-by-country basis (e.g., China or Japan), but the missing component in that literature is a single publication on how this growing entity will affect the rest of the world in the 21st century. This is particularly important when considering global hypercompetition and sustainable economics in the fastest growing region in the world. This publication will provide some explanation regarding the importance for business executives and managers to consider such issues in strategic planning and operations. Objective The value of this publication is to provide business and government executives with reference material that could be used in strategic planning and operations, among other functions such as human resource management and security. Because there is no one Reference publication encompassing the entire Asia/Pacific region regarding the economic and technological advancements on the rest of the world, this handbook would be of particular value to executives, researchers, and graduate students of Asia and related subjects. Target Audience The target audience includes business and government executives, graduate and undergraduate business students, and scholar-practitioners who need a single source regarding the effects of the Asia region on global economics and politics.
