520    This book is among the first to theoretically and 
       empirically examine what and how Western expatriate 
       managers learn and develop from their international 
       assignments in China. The book draws on literature 
       associated with expatriate studies, experiential learning 
       theory, and knowledge acquisition to develop an expatriate
       learning process model. Following on from this, the study 
       then examines expatriate learning outcomes from four 
       perspectives: learning style transition, adaptive 
       flexibility, global mind-sets and managerial tacit 
       knowledge. It enhances understanding of the cultural 
       differences between Western countries and China as well as
       the kinds of learning strategies successful expatriates 
       adopt in order to quickly adapt to intercultural business 
       contexts. This book will appeal to international business 
       practitioners and research fellows who are interested in 
       international human resource management.
