About this book


This book focuses on the study of International business and more specifically 'Is the international business research agenda running out of steam?' After laying down this challenge, Buckley presents three theoretical developments, which point to ways forward for the agenda. He includes empirical evidence on the strategy of the Multinational Enterprise and on foreign direct investment and the world economy.
