This comprehensive new collection provides a careful selection of the major writings to have appeared in the field of foreign direct investment (FDI) and technological change since 1966.

It has been prepared by one of the leading contributors and pioneers in this field, and is an area of research that has attracted a steady growth in interest over the last thirty years.

After a new introduction which critically surveys the literature, the collection provides a comprehensive coverage that incorporates the early analysis of FDI and technology; the theoretical foundations of the analysis of technological change in multinational firms; theoretical models and empirical studies of technology transfer; the internationalization of technology creation; technology-based inter-company alliances; the co-evolution of FDI and technological development at country level; the geographical localization of the technological efforts of foreign-owned affiliates and technology spillovers between firms.
