Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
The Handbook of Global Supply Chain Management is no light reference, but a solid pick for college-level libraries strong in holdings pertaining to global supply chains. . . .Attention to well-rounded detail and depth from different approaches makes The Handbook of Global Supply Chain Management a critical acquisition for any serious college-level collection offering grad students and researchers detailed perspectives on the subject.
International Journal of Supply Chain Management - Dr. Md. Mamun Habib

Providing such a book is important for at least three reasons:

First, doctoral/postgraduate students must, in the course of their dissertation projects, provide a literature review of what they have researched within a given topic/area. The manner in which papers are referenced here makes it possible to conduct a detailed investigation of their approaches, such as research frameworks, methodologies, applied theories and empirical observations. Thus, this book aims to provide postgraduate and research students, faculty, practitioners an overview of what has been researched in the recent past in some important areas of SCM.

Second, providing such an overview also makes it possible for the professional managers to understand the trends and new development in methodologies and approaches having practical relevance.

Third, such a contribution makes it possible to identify gaps between current, state-of-the-art thinking within

SCM and the themes actually researched in.
