The third edition of this popular text offers substantially revised chapters on Emerging global players and Global trends, as well as more coverage of ethics and sustainability, and outsourcing and offshoring. It also includes:
* All new Mini Cases with questions, to help you analyse the activities of 'transnational' firms such as Shell, Danone, Siemens and eBay * New Examples which are highlighted throughout, demonstrating how each aspect of theory has been applied in real-life organisations * New and improved learning features to aid your understanding and help with revision Visit www.palgrave.com/business/lasserre3e for self-test questions, useful weblinks and resources, links to long cases online and a searchable glossary.
