'Thanks you for your help. This is the fifth book that I have published with Edward Elgar. It is always a wonderful experience!'

Tim Roth, Economists and the State

'The book has arrived and looks excellent! Thanks for the stress free collaboration.'

Patrick Ten Brink

‘‘Whatever their views about the merits of the contents, almost everyone who has seen my book has had nothing but praise for its production and appearance. This was my view too when I first saw it - it is a superlative production in every way: its cover, paper, print, figures and diagrams. Thank you and everyone at Edward Elgar so much for not sparing any effort to make it so attractive.’

Ian Gough, Heat, Greed and Human Need

'As always it has been a great pleasure working with everyone at Edward Elgar. My association has been long standing and I hope it will continue on for a long time to come.'

Craig Julian, Research Handbook on the Globalization of Chinese Firms

'The complimentary copy of my book arrived today and it looks great. A special feeling to hold your own book in your hands and I am grateful to EE for the opportunity to publish.'

Mike Koehler, The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act In A New Era

'Let me say what a great job you did on my paper! I also ran your changes by our in-house copyeditor, who was equally impressed. (Good copyediting is very hard to come by these days.) I'm glad to be on board with a journal that has such outstanding support!'

Nicolas Wilson, Leadership and the Humanities (Journal)

“ wanted to tell you how pleased I am (and I am sure Amnon is too), at your fast and professional job. The book looks lovely. I'm very happy that we chose Elgar, and of course, that you chose us.

Shlomo Maital, Mapping National Innovation Ecosystems
