Countries in Asia can be related in various ways. This paper studies the relationships among India, China, Vietnam, and Japan through four common denominators: westernization, nationalism, Gandhi, and women. It looks at how these factors have influenced the social and economic make-up of these diverse countries.

From the Paper:

"Westernization, sometimes called "Americanization," has affected industry in China, Vietnam, India, and Japan in similar ways. Because Japan has been open to internationalization (and along with that comes westernization), it has surpassed other nations economically. The Japanese style of conducting business differs greatly from the western model, however. Japan is an island nation, which has isolated them. This isolation puts a strong emphasis on working together as a group in order to survive. It has shaped a business culture in which long-term, mutually beneficial relationships are of the highest importance. The Japanese quest for purity is very different from the American idea of open doors and diversity as strength. While in the western world, individuality and independence are highly valued, Japanese society emphasizes group activity and organization. The people accept that they will belong to one social group and work for one company for life."
