The third edition of this popular textbook has been thoroughly expanded and updated throughout to explore the latest approaches to cross-cultural management, presenting strategies and tactics for managing international assignments and global teams. With a clear emphasis on learning and development, this new edition introduces a global management model, along with enhanced 'Applications' and 'Manager's Notebooks' to encourage students to acquire skills in multicultural competence that will be highly valued by their future employers.

This is one of the best international management textbooks that I have come across in thirty years of working in the field.' Mark E. Mendenhall, University of TennesseeSee more reviews
