Critical Acclaim
‘Over the last quarter of a century the literature on direct foreign investment (DFI) has grown both in volume and sophistication. These two volumes bring together the most influential and enduring pieces in this vast research. . . . The articles included in those two volumes not only provide the theoretical tools for the analysis of these but also serve to remind us of the controversial nature of the operations of the MNC.’
– Mohammed A. Salisu, The Economic Journal
