The international community is confronted with a new set of challenges, the scale and complexity of which is virtually unprecedented. In this connection, there are heightened demands for international business research to provide guidance for decision-makers on how to solve actual problems. Impact of International Business addresses current challenges and issues, and provides fresh insights that are pertinent for policy and practice. The book examines various contemporary international business issues from various viewpoints, draws on research conducted in different countries, examines IB issues in both developed and emerging country contexts, offers various theoretical perspectives and different methodologies. It provides both rigorous empirical and conceptual advances and insights that are useful and relevant for managers and policy makers in their search for solutions in face of current challenges posed by the international environment.
