MEDIA REVIEWS
`This remarkable book constitutes a rich and, at the same time, highly accessible contribution to the study of transnational corporations (TNCs). It is written in clear language and provides a comprehensive and detailed overview, as well as a thoughtful critical analysis, of TNC concepts, theories and impact, with specific attention to international production process. . . Ietto-Gillies offers an outstanding and rigorous critical analysis of the main forces behind the development of TNCs and their growing role in capitalistic systems. She provides thoughtful and interesting insights on the convergence of different theoretical frameworks on the determinants and effects of the operations of TNCs, placing them in the wider picture in which the social and economic circumstances are always taken into account. This book is a unique and durable point of reference for both research and teaching in the field of international business, and for the latter purpose it has an excellent didactic structure.' -- Simona Iammarino, Regional Studies
