Bibliographical note

"The impressive expansion of emerging economies during the last decade, especially compared to the developed countries, has changed the global economic landscape and is likely to affect even the political constellations. This valuable edited volume not only shows that this new reality increasingly matters and shifts the world economy more south- and eastwards but also underlines the opportunities and limitations of these emerging markets and companies. The editors succeed in bringing together diverse and relevant dimensions of the new multipolar world economy. The contributions provide interesting theoretical insights and analyses of the internationalization process of firms and markets. It covers different industries as well as large and small countries and consists of a very complete and worthwhile study of relevance to academics, policymakers and practitioners." - Daniel Van Den Bulcke, Professor University of Antwerp, Former Chair European International Business Academy
