"The editors have done a great job of covering a very broad area of research with their selection of topics. The selection includes traditional topics, such as a review of the state of the art in location selection models, as well as contemporary ones, such as logistics in the face of global warming, models in healthcare, and disaster management applications. The topics...are relevant and interesting, well written, technically sound, and constitute significant contributions to the area of logistics. The topics collectively emphasize the importance of simultaneous consideration of multiple aspects of logistics problems together (e.g., tactical and operational, distribution and inventory, here-and-how, and wait-and-see decisions), which is a major and relatively recent trend that researchers as well as practitioners should be aware of. The book communicates this important message. Each one of several application-oriented chapters could easily be used as case studies in graduate-level applied operations research or in a logistics course."

"Interesting applications of Operations Research in diverse areas, some new (such as arctic transportation and relief logistics), some traditional. ... Most of the articles highlight the application area and develop the methodology to address the problem."

"Industrial engineering, born and evolved in the United States, has spent the last three decades growing beyond its original borders into nontraditional applications worldwide. With that, IIE Senior Vice President, International Bopaya Bidanda, Ihsan Sabuncuoglu, and Bahar Y. Kara have joined together to document that growth and edit the three-volume set Industrial Engineering: Management, Tools, and Applications, which consists of Industrial Engineering: Non-Traditional Applications in International Settings, Industrial Engineering Applications in Emerging Countries, and Global Logistics Management. The volumes present international case studies and applications that illustrate industrial engineering in emerging countries."
