The field of international business has much to offer in understanding global economic and business history, charting the emergence, impact, and strategy of the multinational enterprises, and making sense of contemporary global phenomenon. This volume adds to the collection of commentary regarding the shortcomings of international business and the qualities that it was founded upon and may need to rediscover. These include a broad, integrative perspective that calls for consideration of the range of stakeholders – business, government, and civil society –, an interdisciplinary approach that leverages theory and frameworks from allied social sciences, and a clear emphasis on important contemporary phenomenon. This volume provides a strong foundation in these imperatives, and provides productive directions for future research.
