Alliances and Co-Evolution provides alliance managers, consultants and academics with a detailed analysis covering 23 years of the growth and decline of three lifecycles of alliances. This analysis links structural change in the European macro-environment with corporate alliance strategies. It differentiates between strategic alliances and infrastructure alliances with their differing strategic drivers, and proposes a Co-Evolution model to explain, monitor and manage the development of alliances over time.

'Alliances and Co-Evolution' is referenced multiple times in one of the leading strategy text books, 'Exploring Corporate Strategy' 8th Edition, by Johnson, Scholes and Whittington. Dr ul-Haq's book has also been praised by John Burton, Lord Harris, Farok Contractor and John Child.

'Much of the - now vast - literature on business alliances has focused upon globalized mass manufacturing industries or upon hi-tech sectors. This book is a refreshing change in that it looks at the 'Age of alliances'' through the lens of a traditional service sector: banking. Serious students and practitioners of banking/finance, and of strategic management, would be well advised to read it...' - Professor John Burton, Author, formerly Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham, UK

'In this extremely well-presented monograph, the author, Dr ul-Haq, generously shares with fellow-students as well as with advanced practitioners the rich fruits of his extensive reading, theoretical understanding and penetrating practical insights...The result is an exciting presentation of the unsuspected ways that Adam Smith's apparently simple precept of the division of labour leads on to varied and intricate patterns of collaboration between otherwise independent companies.' - Lord Harris of High Cross, Cross Bench Member of the House of Lords, Former Founding Chairman of the Institute of Economic Affairs, UK

'Dr Rehan ul-Haq has published a unique book that combines considerable detail about banking operations and inter-bank alliances with an exhaustive coverage of theory on inter-firm cooperation... A deep, scholarly monograph which will be appreciated by students of inter-organizational cooperation, the book could also be highly rewarding to the erudite banker or strategist. - Farok J. Contractor, Professor of International Management, Rutgers Business School, USA

'Dr ul-Haq's book provides a penetrating analysis of strategic alliances informed by his considerable knowledge of the banking sector. His wide review of the literature is of great help to students, while the insights he offers on how alliances evolve over time fill significant gaps in our knowledge.' - John Child, Professor of Commerce, Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham, UK
