Bibliographical note

'By linking the global economic crisis with the inward and outward foreign investment of emerging economies, this book uniquely combines cyclical and secular trends that are of great importance economically as well as geopolitically. It emphasizes the importance of context in defining how emerging economies and firms deal with the challenges of the global crisis. The volume is an essential read for the corporate and government decision maker and for the serious student.' - Oded Shenkar, Professor of Management and Human Resources, Fisher College of Business, The Ohio State University, USA
