Providing new insights and understanding of the political economy of SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) - the epidemic that swept many Asian countries in 2003, this book examines the consequences of SARS in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and elsewhere in Asia, with particular attention to the economic, labour market and human resource management implications of the outbreak. Warner and Lee combine empirical data with thematic analysis, and consider the implications for business and governmental policy-making. This engaging study constitutes a comprehensive analysis of the SARS epidemic and its implications for East Asia. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
