Last, but by no means least, this chapter has taken China as a pre-eminent example of the contribution that an institutional and context-sensitive analysis can make to the study of international business. Business contexts that are unconventional to the main contemporary perspectives in this field of study can only serve to generate the discomfort that stimulates learning. China provides this kind of challenge to academics and practitioners alike.
