Reviews

Review from previous edition Best on the market. Global Marketing has excellent content, insight and a user friendly structure. It is differentiated from other texts by reference to contemprorary and emergent topics. - Dr Catherine McGuinn, Institute of Technology, Sligo

Very good, outstanding. - Dr Said Al-Hasan, Glamorgan Business School

This book is more comprehensive than comparable text books and offers a combination of theory and practical application that is often missing. - Dr Antje Cockrill, Swansea University
