    for international business students

    About half the book is case studies and excerpts from orginal texts by researchers 'usually pioneers in this field'. So fortunately you wont get bored from just reading theory. The book first presents the theoretical foundation of each topic, this is then followed by many case studies and usually excerpts from a prominent research result. The writing is reader-friendly and well done. This book is not really a practical 'how-to' book on management, it mainly serves an academic audience. This book would suit anyone studying any form of international business: management,marketing, exporting etc.
