Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
This is a comprehensive book about the challenges and opportunities in conducting business in the global sphere. It strikes a good balance between the basic economic theory underlying international business decisions and the practice followed in real-world situations. The treatment of culture, politics, marketing and human resource management in international business is thorough, while the coverage of practical issues in doing business in both developed and developing countries is illuminating. I found the case/scenario approach in presenting the main themes of each chapter as an ingenious way to convey the main messages of the authors. I highly recommend this book for any undergraduate course in international business, as well as for both novice and seasoned entrepreneurs dealing in the global environment. -- Michael G. Papaioannou, Ph. D., Senior Economist, International Capital Markets Department, International Monetary Fund
