Andrew Harrison has expertly authored this engaging text on the business environment, offering theoretical rigour, along with a truly global focus, and an understanding of the economic dimensions of the subject. The text takes a unique approach exploring the business environment at different spatial levels (global, international, national, and regional), in different dimensions (culture, ethics, internationalization, markets, technology, and risk) and in the main geopolitical regions (Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Africa). The text is packed with up-to-date case studies that demonstrate how international companies are affected by, and deal with, serious global issues ranging from the Arab uprising to the growing influence of the BRIC countries. Practical insights interspersed in each chapter provide balanced commentary on the key issues and topics discussed, with further research being prompted by related questions. The text is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre, which includes: For Students: Chapter and case study updates Emerging issues Annotated web links Ideas for research topics For Lecturers: Lecture notes PowerPoint slides Assignment scenarios and questions Guidance on discussion questions and cases Figures and tables from the text

Review from previous edition I find the writing style very good because it is at the same time both highly readable and it incorporates, as necessary, complex ideas and rigorous analysis. * Rob Thomas, Portsmouth University *
It is clear, intelligently written, interesting and with some useful additional features, including the practical insights boxes and opening and closing cases. The material makes good sense, is readable to a non-expert audience and makes clear links between sections. It is structurally sound and well organised. * Scott McCabe, Nottingham University *
Harrison's text is accessible, comprehensive in approach, and significantly engaging by virtue of the clear examples and cases that support the study of the international business environment. * Connie Hancock, University of Chester *
Balanced and well considered, Harrison's text outlines the basic information well and enables students to take their reading further, within the same text, to the level their ability and interest allows. * Jean Jenkins, Cardiff University *
A well-structured easy-to-read textbook. It covers all the major topics students in international business global environment have to address. * Andrea Moro, University of Leicester *
