About the Author:

Andrea Colli is Professor of Economic History at Bocconi University, Italy. He is co-author of the textbook Business History: Compexities and Comparisons with Franco Amatori (2011, Routledge)

Review:

'Andrea Colli has written a splendid history of the multinational enterprise from medieval Europe to present day business. Practically every chapter has a case study illustrating the theme of the chapter. These case studies accent the evolving forms of multinational enterprise through the centuries. Colli shows with great skill how the organizational and administrative forms of multinational enterprise have altered through time. His book puts the multinational enterprise into the context of the changing world order.' - Mira Wilkins, Professor, Florida International University, USA

'A convincing presentation of the historical roots of today’s most dynamic economic actor: International business. Colli understood to combine major trends with illustrative detail. A masterpiece on economic history.' - Harm G. Schröter, Professor, University of Bergen, Norway

'This is the textbook I was looking for when I set up a new history course on International Business and Nation States. It gives the students a much needed long-term perspective on the development of international business.' - Ben Wubs, Associate Professor, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands

'Andrea Colli has skilfully produced an innovative book which brings together the role of markets, firms and entrepreneurs to explain the past and current challenges and dynamics of international business in the global economy. It will be of great interest to those studying or teaching international business and its history.' - Teresa da Silva Lopes, Professor, University of York, UK

'This is a very personal, fresh new narrative that intelligently integrates theories of international studies, and organization, in the historical description of key periods of change in world business history from medieval times to the present day. There are vivid case studies that will appeal to readers with an appetite for real history, as well as are synthetic integration of many debates and theories for audiences that want analysis and concepts. A welcome, much needed contribution that should be required reading in any international business history course.' - Paloma Fernández Pérez, Senior Lecturer, University of Barcelona, Spain
