  1. China and the Global Economy

    China and the Global Economy

    Edited by Shahid Yusuf
    China’s global economic footprint is large and growing. In recent years, China has contributed a third or more to the growth of the global economy, following its meteoric rise starting in the 1980s and gathering momentum in the 1990s. China has convincingly demonstrated the efficacy of investment and export-led growth as a model of development, and has achieved economic stardom using a mix of industrial, trade and exchange rate policies within the framework of a gradually reforming socialist market economy. The chapters in this volume, written by prominent China scholars and economists, as well as an original introduction by a world-leading expert, explore China’s economy. This collection will be an invaluable resource for China watchers and to researchers, students and policymakers interested in learning from East Asia’s development, understanding how China transformed its economy and wondering how China might come to grips with the challenges ahead.

  2. Global Infrastructure Networks

    Global Infrastructure Networks

    Colin Turner, Debra Johnson
    Infrastructure represents the core underpinning architecture of the global economic system. Adopting an approach informed by realism, this insightful book looks at the forces for the integration and fragmentation of the global infrastructure system. The authors undertake a thorough examination of the main internationalised infrastructure sectors: energy, transport and information. They argue that the global infrastructure system is a network of national systems and that state strategies exert powerful forces upon the form and function of this system. Learn More

  3. Globalisation and Democracy

    Globalisation and Democracy

    Edited by Jonathan Michie
    There could hardly be a more appropriate time in world history to be revisiting the issues of globalisation and democracy. After almost two centuries what might be regarded as globalisation in the current usage of the term, has fallen into disrepute. Voters have used the ballot box to reject both the concept of globalisation and the mainstream parties that promoted it. The UK voted to leave the EU, in the 2016 ‘Brexit’ referendum, and the US elected Donald Trump as President. This collection brings together the key writings on globalisation and democracy, exploring the progression of globalisation, as well as themes such as employment, international trade, technology and the environment, amongst other important issues. This collection provides both scholarly and lay readers an opportunity to analyse how globalisation has impacted the world we live in today. Learn More

  5. The Global Factory

    The Global Factory

    Peter J. Buckley
    This key new book synthesises Peter Buckley's work on ‘the global factory’ – the modern networked multinational enterprise. The role of interfirm networks, entrepreneurship and cooperation in the creation and management of global factories leads to a discussion of their governance, internal knowledge transfer strategies and performance, including their role in potentially combating societal failures. Emerging country multinationals are examined as a special case of global factories with a focus on Indian and Chinese multinationals, their involvement in tax havens and offshore financial centres, the performance and processes of their acquisition strategies – all seen as key aspects of globalisation.

  9. CSR and Climate Change Implications for Multinational Enterprises

    CSR and Climate Change Implications for Multinational Enterprises

    Edited by John R. McIntyre, Silvester Ivanaj, Vera Ivanaj
    Multinational economic actors, particularly corporations, play a defining role in the response to the climate change or warming debate and the emerging scientific consensus. This book describes, explains, and predicts how multinational firms will rise to the multiple challenges posed by global climate issues and the organizational and behavioral various responses of the international corporate community. It focuses on three core research and learning objectives. Firstly, it develops the core idea that multinational enterprises cannot implement meaningful sustainability initiatives without an appropriate governance system and corporate culture. Building on this notion, it addresses the question of environmental sustainability across select industry sectors, such oil and banking. Finally, drawing on a diverse range of contributing experts, it presents select best practices such as the opportunities arising from smart technologies implementation to achieve symbiotic industrial relationships, directed particularly towards the ecological environment of these firms’ transborder operations and global reach.

  11. Regional Infrastructure Systems

    Regional Infrastructure Systems

    Colin Turner
    As the international economy globalises, there is a need for national infrastructure systems to adapt to form a global infrastructure system. This network of networks aids mobility between national systems as a means of supporting their territorial needs and preferences. This reflects a strategic approach to state infrastructuring as nations seek to utilise these physical systems to support and enhance their territoriality. Providing a thorough examination through the lens of economic infrastructure, the book addresses the forces of integration and fragmentation in global networks. Learn More

  13. Comparative Capitalism and the Transitional Periphery

    Comparative Capitalism and the Transitional Periphery

    Edited by Mehmet Demirbag, Geoffrey Wood
    With a growing body of literature dealing with business and management issues in the transitional economies of Central and Eastern Europe, the study of the ‘transitional periphery’, or post-Soviet economies, is sparse. A combination of rich natural resources and strategic locations make these economies of significant importance. This book provides fresh and recent research on both firms and the business environment in this region. It serves as a key reference work for those interested in comparative capitalism, business and society in the post state socialist world. Learn More

  14. Globalization

    Globalization

    C. Gopinath
    Globalization evokes mixed responses. It is praised for facilitating business, greater trade between nations and reducing poverty, and is also accused of causing job losses and homogenizing culture. While some nations cheer its benefits, others think of barriers to protect themselves. Yet, everyone agrees that it is a multidimensional and complex process that continuously reshapes our environment. Rather than wonder whether globalization is good or bad, it is important to understand how it impacts nations, organizations and individuals and be prepared to operate in that context. Learn More

    Working Internationally

    Yvonne McNulty, Chris Brewster
    Managing expatriates and other ‘traditional’ internationally mobile workers is a significant part of many academic programmes and the focus of some specialist ones. But we cannot answer the big questions about global mobility if we exclude from our teaching people who do not fit with our usual conceptions and assumptions about who it is that organisations employ.
