The Oxford Handbook of International Business / Edition 2

As globalization explodes, so has international business scholarship. This second edition of the Oxford Handbook of International Business synthesises all the relevant literature of the last 50 years in 28 original chapters by the world's most distinguished scholars. Reflecting the changes and development in the field since the first edition, this new edition has five new chapters freshly written, while all the other chapters have been substantially updated to take account of the latest scholarship. The book also adds a new section on methodological issues.
