Spanning nine countries, filled with heroic tales of bold decisions and self-sacrifice, and probing vast historical undercurrents, "The Miracle" takes readers inside private boardroom meetings, heated business negotiations, factory floors, and presidential cabinet sessions for a behind-the-scenes look at the events that shaped Asia's economic ascent - and will shape the world in the century to come. With this insider's view, Michael Schuman uncovers how outsourcing to Asia began, how Asia's most successful companies became global corporations, and reveals the technological changes and global economic shifts that made Asia's boom possible. Schuman focuses on the compelling human side to this economic story, and readers will meet the political strongmen, the entrepreneurs, and the key policymakers who shared the same dream: to uplift Asia to its proper place of influence in the world and eradicate the poverty around them.
