The book arose froma multi-disciplinarystudy which looked at the development of global-local manufacturing clusters in the context of a developing, Asian economy.The studydemonstrates the connectionamongst theoretical perspectives such as international business, development studies, economic geography, andorganisational learning clusters/production networksthroughan in-depth case study of the Indonesian automotive cluster. The book gives a detailed account of two automotive clusters (Toyota and Honda) and their contribution to regional economic development in emerging economies in Asian region. The book builds onexisting literature to develop a theoretical framework to shed light on the study'sempirical findings.

The book discusses practical implications for both the business community and policy makers. The discussion on global-local networks in an Asian contextsupplements existing literature and case studies in the field.
