This path-breaking book presents new work by leading international scholars on the achievements and challenges facing international business in the twenty-first century. It considers key up-to-date developments in both the theory and practice of international business. After analysing the historical evolution of international business as an academic discipline, the book focuses on its relationship to the other social sciences. New light is shed on current issues and intellectual debates with a view to identifying new directions and future areas of research. The authors then develop the discussion to consider the present globalization of the economy, addressing the strategies of multinationals, the increasingly `borderless' world and management competition. The book will be of interest both to scholars and all those concerned with business education.

`. . . this is a very powerful book that examines the field of international business in many different ways. The scholars in the field have given very honest and understandable accounts of the field of international business. The presentation is extremely well organised and should be of interest to international business scholars, individuals concerned with business education, and individuals who have had international experience as consultants, officials, or managers. The editors have done an excellent job in putting together this piece of work. Current Issues in International Business contributes a great deal to the field and presents all the important issues that will propel international business research into the 21st century.' -- Leo A. Giglio, Business and the Contemporary World `In all, this latest volume from Edward Elgar fits well into the [International Business] catalogue. The book itself is a microcosm of the issues facing international business, reflecting perfectly the desire to cover a broad area with academic rigour, yet maintain intelligible boundaries. It is an admirable achievement.' -- Susan Scott-Green, Business History
