Handbook of research on international strategic management.


Handbook of research on international strategic management.

Ed. by Alain Verbeke and Hemant Merchant.

Edward Elgar Publishing


495 pages




Intent on contributing to this relatively new management field, Verbeke (U. of Calgary, Canada, among other affiliations) and Merchant (U. of South Florida) have structured a compendium of 24 articles (some, their own; others from carefully selected authors who wrote on assigned topics). Conceptual foundation topics include key hypotheses that make internationalization theory the general theory of international strategic management; the new eclectic paradigm and international business strategy; and the multinational enterprise as a global factory. Structural complexities are addressed in chapters on initiative in multinational subsidiaries, joint venture configurations in big emerging markets, and building competitive advantage in international acquisitions. Implications of distance issues are discussed as are trends, new conceptions of the MNE-development relationship, and climate change strategies.
