Overview

Part of the new Blackwell Images of Business Strategy series: this highly topical book provides multi-disciplinary perspectives on the important area of Mergers & Acquisitions, ranging from finance to psychology, on the subject of mergers and acquisitions. A stimulating mixture of critique, analysis and cases, each chapter:

  • Introduces key frameworks that relate to a particular perspective
  • Incorporates case studies where these frameworks can be used for interpretive and diagnostic purposes
  • Invites readers to apply the frameworks as maps or tools for analysing their own organisational experiences via a series of general discussion questions
  • Seeks to develop its perspective by offering analytical insights into actual experiences of mergers and acquisitions in different global contexts, successful and unsuccessful, presenting new empirically based evidence to support the arguments.

Drawn from around the world, each author is a leading exponent in his or her perspective on mergers and acquisitions.

Images of Business Strategy Series blurb:

Books in the series interrogate conventional categories in today’s fast-changing business world. By applying new perspectives, they redefine established territories and extend our view of important business phenomena. Select international contributions to each volume are integrated by the Editor to provide a richer insight into the business landscape and open up new conceptual horizons.
