Overview

2009 RUSA Outstanding Business Reference

Business in today’s world is increasingly diverse. Undertaking commerce, even by an individual, can mean working globally through a welter of new media with opportunities of all kinds rapidly appearing. The boundaries, scope, content, structures, and processes of a business activity can morph into completely different ones in the course of a project. Contemporary businesses, and certainly future businesses, find it incumbent upon them to fit within the requirements of environmental and economic sustainability of the others who inhabit our world.

With more than 1,000 entries, the Encyclopedia of Business in Today's World is packed with essential and up-to-date information on the state of business in our world. Not only does it reflect where business is, it also conveys the trajectory of business farther into the 21st century. These four volumes provide clear overviews of the important business topics of our time, ranging from culture shock to currency hedging, political risk, offshoring, and transnational corporations. The wealth of topics represent an integrated vision by the editor of a perplexity of functions, technologies, and environmental factors.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Kathleen A. Welton
With more than 1000 entries, this encyclopedia provides essential and up-to-date information on the state of business in our world. It reflects both where business is and where it is going in the 21st century. Key features include insights into the development and current business situation globally, with coverage on individual countries; the processes, responsibilities, and ethics of business in the global market; and business policies, regions, countries, dimensions of globalization, economic factors, international agreements, financial instruments, accounting regulations and approaches, theories, legislation, and management practices and approaches. These four volumes offer clear overviews of the important business topics and themes, ranging from competitive forces, cultural environments, and ethics to human resources, legal and labor issues, and marketing. The wealth of topics represents an integrated vision by the editor along with entries by experts from diverse fields. Each entry provides bibliographic information and recommendations. Also noteworthy is a glossary and an extensive appendix that looks at World Trade Organization statistics. Wankel (management, St. John's Univ.) holds a doctorate from New York University, where he was admitted to the Beta Gamma Sigma national honor society for business disciplines. He also has extensive international experience, ranging from the United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore to Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Mexico. BOTTOM LINE This is a general, nontechnical resource for students, professors, and librarians as well as investors and managers seeking to understand the development of business as practiced inthe United States and internationally. Highly recommended.—Kathleen A. Welton, Chicago
School Library Journal - Vicki Reutter
Gr 9 Up—More than 1000 entries, authored by experts and scholars from around the world, offer a diverse perspective on our global economy. Coverage includes financial terms and concepts; countries; well-known companies; and legal, environmental, and social issues. The alphabetical arrangement allows readers to find side-by-side articles on "Fair Trade," "Family Leave," "Feng Shui," and "Fiat," each with its own bibliography and cross-references. Perspectives on economic systems such as communism, socialism, and capitalism contain subsections on Maoism, Marxism, cooperatives, and mercantilism, and feature examples and debate about their successes and failures. While there are no specific entries for individuals, the index references many notables such as John Maynard Keynes, Milton Friedman, Geert Hofstede, and Joseph Stiglitz. The set's value to sociology and global history curriculums should not be underestimated, as many of the topics address the interrelationship of economies and their peoples. Current topics include sea piracy, terrorism, fair trade, ethnocentrism, and intellectual property rights. While the approach is scholarly, high school students will have no problem navigating the clear and well-outlined text. Captioned black-and-white photos and company logos appear throughout, but add little. The last volume contains a 40-page glossary and a lengthy appendix of the World Trade Organization's tables and charts on imports and exports. The general index is found in this final volume only; there is a set list of entries in the front of each volume.—Vicki Reutter, Cazenovia High School, NY
