International Business Law and Its Environment Summary


International Business Law and Its Environment by Richard Schaffer (Professor Emeritus, Appalachian State University)

Today most people agree that no business is purely domestic and that even the smallest local firms are affected by global competition and world events. INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS AND ITS LEGAL ENVIRONMENT is designed to deliver comprehensive, yet accessible, coverage of the legal implications and ramifications of doing business internationally, along with the related cultural, political, economic, and ethical issues faced by global business managers. Focusing on trade, the licensing of intellectual property, and foreign direct investment, the authors present the three major forms of doing business in a foreign country through real-world examples, precedent-setting cases, managerial implications, and ethical considerations. From the legal relationship between parties in an international business transaction to managing risk to learning the special challenges of doing business in emerging economies, the 9th Edition helps students understand the most common practices and critical issues in global business law.

International Business Law and Its Environment Reviews


"The chapters begin with sufficiently basic material and build from there. It's very useful to have key terms highlighted and paginated at the end the chapter."
"I have used the Shaffer textbook for many years and believe it is the best college-level textbook on international business law. It is well-written, authoritative, and duly rigorous."
