The International Business Environment

Third Edition

Leslie Hamilton and Philip Webster

The International Business Environment, Third Edition, begins by setting the global context and evaluating the idea of international industries, the world economy, and the threats and opportunities of global markets. The authors then identify the core issues faced by businesses and the dynamic socio-cultural, technological, political, legal, and ecological environments in which they operate.

  • New assignment tasks at the end of every chapter provide real-world scenarios to develop employability skills and apply understanding.
  • New questions in the mini case studies and counterpoint boxes encourage critical thinking and reflection throughout the book.
  • A wealth of new and updated case studies from around the world illustrate the challenges faced by contemporary organizations in regions as diverse as Africa, Europe, Asia, and the United States.
  • Updated to reflect developments in the financial, political, legal, and technological environments since the publication of the previous edition, including the Arab Spring, economic sanctions on Russia, and changes in the global banking sector.
