International Business
Theory and Practice

March 2011 | 632 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
What is international business? How does it differ from local or national business? What are the fundamental challenges and emerging trends in international business? What is the impact of globalization, corporate social responsibility, and the ever expanding use of digital technology on corporate strategies and executive decisions?

International Business: Theory and Practice addresses these questions by providing the student with a broad overview of the subject, while guiding readers through the practical issues and context of international business with the use of a range of examples, cases and discussion questions drawn from around the world.

Current critical issues in international business are analysed and explored: corporate social responsibility in an era of unprecedented globalization, the rise of the global entrepreneur and the `democratization' of competition worldwide, and applications of technology in a digital economy.

Key Features:

- Unpacks the complex issues facing both multi-national enterprises (MNE) and international small and medium enterprises (SME)

- Contains a full range of learning features including international case studies, explanations of key terms, a glossary, and annotated further reading

- A dedicated companion website with material to support both lecturers and students.

This book is very detailed and has up to date data... But little intense for undergraduate students. That's why I will use this book as supplementary for undergrad International Business Management Class.

I think it was a fairly good book, but not really what I was looking for. I have thus passed it on to one of my former doctoral candidates who is now developing a course where it might fit.

The book is very comprehensive and a good read. Only downside is that it could be more succinct in some parts, so aggregating information a bit stronger.

Colleagues pushed for staying with Hill. I could go on my own, but decided to fit in, given assessment issues. I am hoping that our next round of reviews will get us moving.
