Succession in Asian Family Firms examines the history and survival of family businesses in the South Asian Diaspora from an international perspective. The book presents unique research across three continents, focusing on significant communities in the UK, USA and Kenya. The book analyzes the influences on both the start up and survival of family firms, exploring how family members negotiate their working practices. The discussion provides a new perspective on issues central to the debate on family business succession whilst developing ideas on less familiar areas such as the role and influence of women through different cultural contexts.
