As you’ll know from today’s news, the world of international business moves quickly. And as a student of the subject, you’ll need a textbook which keeps pace with the ongoing developments in both theory and practice.

This fifth edition of International Business delivers a comprehensive introduction to the subject from authors at the forefront of research and fresh thinking.

Taking a regional approach, this text challenges some of the underlying assumptions behind globalization and focuses on both the dominant economies – the EU, the US and Japan – and the emerging markets in world trade, such as Brazil, India and China.

Critical to your successful study of international business, the book provides:

  • a brand new chapter on China
  • 5 dedicated chapters on key regions of the world
  • 100 case studies drawn from a wide range of sources
  • key frameworks to provide clarity and continuity of understanding
  • a strategic view of international business, integrating analysis of the competitive environment and the internal resources of the firm

So, as a student of today and international manager of tomorrow, open up to learn from the experiences of the established and the emerging forces of world business – from Samsung, Bang & Olufsen and Citigroup to Nanjing Auto, Haier and Tata.
