This edition blends both an institutional-based view and resource-based view throughout every chapter for an unparalleled continuity in the learning process. The book combines an inviting, conversational style with the latest research and examples throughout every chapter. A comprehensive set of cases from Mike Peng and other respected international experts examine how companies throughout the world have expanded globally.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The writing style is engaging, and the text is one of the more readable texts that I've seen."

"The textbook covers almost every aspect of global business that I like to cover in my course."

"I wanted to thank you for writing GLOBAL BUSINESS. It is very informative and entertaining. It is nice to have information presented in a way that is actually exciting and thought provoking, something I have found that many other business texts are lacking. I feel like I am learning to think for myself about important global issues instead of being indoctrinated to think the way mainstream ideologies dictate as 'right' or 'wrong.'"
