  2. 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

  3. Ethical Leadership

    Ethical Leadership

    Edited by Robert M. McManus, Stanley J. Ward, Alexandra K. Perry
    The world cries out for ethical leaders. We expect the best, but we are often left profoundly disappointed. While leadership programs may feature ethics as part of their training, the approach is often either simplistic or overly esoteric. This book addresses this scarcity of resources for training ethical leaders, providing a primer of several ethical frameworks accompanied by extended examples to help inform decision-making. The text also addresses several leadership models that claim an ethical component. By providing a consistent case analysis based on the Five Components of Leadership Model, readers benefit from a comprehensive approach to understanding ethical leadership. Learn More

    Robert A. Baron, Keith M. Hmieleski

In discussing these and other topics, the text draws on research findings that help identify variables that play a role in entrepreneurs’ effective performance of these tasks, and so–ultimately–in their success.

  18. Islamic Education in the United States and the Evolution of Muslim Nonprofit Institutions

    Islamic Education in the United States and the Evolution of Muslim Nonprofit Institutions

    Sabith Khan, Shariq Siddiqui
    This book is a novel and ambitious attempt to map the Muslim American nonprofit sector: its origins, growth and impact on American society.

They argue that in a time when Islamic schools are grossly misunderstood, there is a need to examine them closely, for the landscape of these schools is far more complex than meets the eye.

  20. The Development of International Business

    The Development of International Business

    Robert Pearce
    In this wide-ranging and groundbreaking new book, Robert Pearce provides an analytically-informed basis for understanding the modern multinational enterprise. It does this by tracing the development over the past half-century of two parallel strands of analysis in International Business; designated as the ‘theoretical’ and the ‘practical’. The book shows how the practical restructuring of the MNE as an organisational form has responded to changes in the wider global economy and how this evolution has interfaced with the enriching of the relevant theorising. By tracing the persisting dynamics of the MNEs’ structure and strategic positioning it demonstrates how what it is now can be used as a template for understanding and organising its further evolution as additional changes condition its environment.
