There's a finely written chapter in a book entitled 'High Tide: Australians doing business in Asia' that came out of South Australia. It's not about Asia but about Fiji and is based on interviews with two missionaries who went to Fiji from Australia. Rev Allan Hatcher and his wife of course, and Marj Hodge. I can't copy it here but you can find it to read on-line at High tide: Australians doing business in Asia - Google Books ResultDavid Harris - 1997 - Business & Economics - 165 pages. It's Chapter Five. Go to this website and click on the picture of the book cover.
