Review:

"This edition continues the tradition of clearly explaining foundational international management concepts and processes, and illustrating them with exemplary real-world examples. The chapters emphasize the increasing interdependency of both companies and national economies, and the perpetual importance of refining one’s cross-cultural skills." - John P. Orr, Ph.D., Webster University, Walker School of Business & Technology, USA

 

"The 5th edition of International Management by Dean McFarlin and Paul Sweeney is a truly superb textbook that can be used in executive education courses, graduate-level courses, or advanced undergraduate classes in the areas of management, organizational behavior, and/or international business. This textbook is particularly strong in the areas of cross-cultural management, international business ethics, global negotiations, conflict management, motivation and leadership, managing international and multicultural teams, and rewarding and evaluating employees. But -- most importantly -- it covers the most current research and topics in international management from a cultural and strategic perspective." - Douglas M. McCabe, Georgetown University, The McDonough School of Business, USA

 

"Sweeney and McFarlin’s fifth edition of International Management provides new insights into the challenges of operating, managing, and collaborating across national borders and cultural regions of the world. The clear writing style, ample illustrations, and integrative cases allow students to synthesize issues and evaluate strategies in effective and practical ways." - Clive Muir, Stephen F. Austin State University, USA

 

"The compelling, illustrative examples of how companies are tackling international management issues and the end-of-chapter experiential features makes this a very engaging textbook for international management courses. The self-assessments and controversial case examples are likely to spark exciting classroom discussions." - Stuart Sidle, Ph.D., University of New Haven, USA
