To most people, the topics of China and Law do not hold out the promise of an entertaining book. For many prospective investors in China, the only thing more daunting than investing in the Middle Kingdom would be enduring a book written by a lawyer. However, it is time for these prejudices to be reassessed.

China: The Art of Law, written by Mark E. Schaub, the first Western lawyer to work in China’s largest law firm, is a lively, entertaining and informative book that provides practical guidance for foreign investors doing business in China. Covering all issues from setting up a foreign-invested enterprise (FIE), project implementation to managing risks and restructuring FIEs, the book liberally draws on real life experiences.

Changes have been made to the cases to protect the guilty, greedy, foolhardy, corrupt, stupid and hopeless. As for the innocent - well, they do not normally make it to signing. This book will give both newcomers and old hands alike a practical perspective on why some foreign investors fail, others succeed and the rest somehow totter along somewhere in between.
