ôTony Fang is uniquely qualified to illuminate and explain Chinese negotiating practices for, as a practitioner, he sat on the Chinese side of the table, and as a scholar he is fully up-to-date with Western social science knowledge. He not only is in full command of the literature on Chinese negotiating style, but he has brought to his analysis a broad perspective that extends to the institutional and ideological ways of Chinese Communism, the Confucian tradition, and the ancient Chinese writings on strategy and the ways for outwitting the enemy. A careful reading of his book should reduce surprises and improve the performances of all who seek to deal with the Chinese.ö
