How much does national culture and management style influence acquisitions and post-acquisition management?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book provides a refreshing new perspective on issues related to the management of acquisitions, an area that has received limited research attention. In particular, it provides some very interesting insights into how differences in acquiring firm nationalities have important implications for postacquisition management and subsequent performance." The Academy of Management Review, Jan. 2002, Vol. 27, Issue 1, p129, 4p
