Leslie Hamilton and Philip Webster

  • With more case studies than any other international business environment textbook, this is the most practical and credible introduction to the subject.
  • Provides a truly global approach with case studies and coverage from almost every continent, illustrating the theories at work and in practice across the world.
  • Varied learning features, including counterpoint boxes, learning tasks, review questions, and diagrams, ensure that students are adequately supported and challenged to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
  • A comprehensive set of online resources, closely tied to the book, provide questions, videos, and exercises for students to extend their learning, and PowerPoint slides and teaching guidance to assist lecturers.

New to this Edition:

  • An extensive refresh of case studies across the book ensures that the most contemporary developments in global businesses are available for exploration and analysis. These include the exploits of companies like Google, Netflix, Uber, and Apple, as well as international developments such as Brexit, the Trump presidency, China's One Belt One Road project, and Saudi Arabian women's rights.
  • New and updated coverage includes the Sustainable Development Goals, disruptive innovation, and cybercrime.
  • New contributors join the author team to offer their relevant expertise on the different contexts of the international business environment.
  • Figures, tables, and statistics have been updated throughout to give the latest picture and provide the most up-to-date analysis.
