Overview

In Regional Cultures, Managerial Behavior, and Entrepreneurship: An International Perspective, edited by Joseph W.

Offering both empirical analysis and experience-based case studies of eight nations--including the U.S. (Silicon Valley), Catalonia, France, Finland, Switzerland, India, West Germany and Belize--the authors explore the ways in which regional culture influences and is influenced by industrial and management practices.
