This Seventh Edition of International Business is dedicated to Professor Alan Rugman. He was the originator of this textbook and one of the leading scholars in the field. As we remember Alan’s contribution is acknowledged, Professor Rajneesh Narula is also welcomed as the new co-author of the book. He has written three completely new opening Chapters reflecting a number of new themes for this Edition, including:
· technology and innovation, as key drivers of international competitiveness;
· institutions as mediators and moderators of MNE (multinational enterprise) activities, and;
· small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as important global players.
The Seventh Edition also contains a new chapter, “MNEs as Responsible Stakeholders” and more discussion, analysis and examples of how global firms affect and shape the world around us, positively and negatively. The text's analysis takes the reader beyond simple descriptions of best practice and performance to critically appraise the interaction and interdependence between global firms and their environments, institutions, policymakers and local communities.
The book retains its tried and tested structure, with 5 case studies in each Chapter, except Chapter 1, which provides an introduction to international business and an overview of the major themes running through the book. There are 100 case studies in total and two-thirds of them have been thoroughly updated. We have also created 21 brand new cases, including: ‘Worrying Times for Singapore’s SMEs’, ‘Greece: Third (Bailout) Time Lucky’, ‘the 2015 China financial crisis’, ‘Adidas: Promoting a Global Sports Brand’, the ‘Glass Ceiling’, ‘Nestle in Nigeria’, ‘Financial Transparency at Siemens’ and the ‘VW Diesel Dispute’.
