Reviews for The Routledge Companion to Cross-Cultural Management
'Never in the history of humanity has it been more important for the peoples of the world to learn how to effectively communicate with each other, both within global corporations and across societies and organizations worldwide. The Routledge Companion to Cross-Cultural Management is therefore both timely and important for every manager, and student of management, who believes that communicating respect is as important as 'getting the work done'.' - Nancy J. Adler, Professor, McGill University, Canada and author of International Dimensions of Organizational Behavior and the Leadership Insight journal (Routledge) 'What a tremendous collection of work by many of the world's greatest experts on cross-cultural and international issues! The Routledge Companion to Cross-Cultural Management is a highly significant path towards advancing the field through the collective works of global scholars addressing cultural issues ranging from theory overview, topic specific issues, educational initiatives, and new advances in the field. I highly recommend this edited volume for both the academic scholar as well as the student of cultural issues in management.' - P. Christopher Earley, Professor, Purdue University, USA 'The aptly named Companion to Cross-Cultural Management is indeed a volume that should be the companion to everyone active in cross-cultural management research and education. It provides excellent coverage of the field including the often overlooked area of language.' - David C. Thomas, PhD, Beedie Chair and Professor of International Management, Simon Fraser University, Canada, Author of 'Cross Cultural Management: Essential Concepts'
