Editorial Reviews

This is a one-volume reference based on the six-volume "International Encyclopedia of Business and Management" (1996), which contains some 500 entries. Sixty-five entries were selected to provide an overview of business and management thinking and practice. The articles are arranged alphabetically, and cover major subject areas like accounting, human resource management, marketing, and organization behavior, as well as others that cut across subject divisions like globalization, multinational corporations, and systems. Each entry begins with an overview and includes an annotated bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
