About the Book

Mike Peng and Klaus Meyer have direct, first-hand, experience of researching and teaching in Europe, Asia and North America. This combined experience makes them uniquely qualified to write this textbook, which offers a comprehensive and accessible introduction to international business that starts from Europe but ultimately encompasses the globe. The text’s comprehensive coverage is accessibly arranged around one central question and two core perspectives.

The central question is – what determines the success and failure of firms around the globe? Institutional and resource-based perspectives are utilised to answer this question. Throughout the text the very latest scholarly research is used to facilitate successful learning of the key concepts, in order to engage students with the historical context and recent global developments.
