Overview


Andrew Harrison has expertly authored this engaging text on the business environment, offering theoretical rigour, along with a truly global focus, and an understanding of the economic dimensions of the subject.

Practical insights interspersed in each chapter provide balanced commentary on the key issues and topics discussed, with further research being prompted by related questions.
