Top scholars in the field of international business (IB) contribute to this
comprehensive analysis of the current state-of-the-art in IB research. The focus of
the book is to examine the current state of international business research from an
issue-oriented approach rather than the functional approaches that have been
characteristic in the recent evolution of the field. In evaluating the current state
and future research directions in research areas unique to international business,
the book is structured in three parts: the macro-environment, interactions between
business and institutions, and competition and strategy.
