Previously entitled Purchasing Principles and Management, this book has been essential reading and the standard text for practitioners and students of the subject of purchasing or procurement for nearly 40 years.

This book will provide the reader with a reflection of sound mainstream practice combined with comment and insight into developing ideas and approaches.

This edition includes:
