Critical Acclaim
‘This Encyclopaedia is a comprehensive guide to the field of international strategic management. It examines international strategic management through a vast range of insightful, concise analyses of the key issues. The volume meets the multidisciplinary and multilevel challenges of the field, and it covers the matrix of relevant phenomena and disciplinary approaches with great style. The Encyclopaedia is centred on the multinational enterprise but goes much deeper and wider into international business environments, external beyond-the-firm impacts, international management and decision processes and the cultural differences that make this such a fascinating field. The excellent search features enable readers and researchers to focus on their interests and its content is up to date and relevant. This volume is highly recommended and will aid both researchers and practitioners as they further refine theory and practice.’
– Peter J. Buckley, Alliance Manchester Business School, UK

‘In their Encyclopedia of International Strategic Management, Asmussen, Hashai and Minbaeva, have assembled some of today''s best thinkers to tackle some of the most current, if not challenging, issues in the study of multinational organizations. Comprehensive, well written and documented, entries offer authoritative reviews of the topics at hand while identifying new research frontiers. The Encyclopedia is a rich and much needed reference for serious scholars.’
– Shaker A. Zahra, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, US

‘This Encyclopedia is a must-have reference source for scholars and practitioners who work in the field of global strategy and management. With a stellar team of contributors, it provides informed and updated descriptions of key terms, theoretical frameworks, and implications that help navigate through the growing and sometimes disjointed literature in this area.’
