Preface C hanges in the global business environment continue unabated and at an accelerated pace.
Many surprising and difficult-to-predict developments have rocked global peace and economic security.
International Management: Culture, Strategy, and Behavior
In addition, concerns about climate change and other environmen- tal issues have prompted companies, in conjunction with governments and nongovern- mental organizations, to consider alternate approaches to business and governance see Chapter 3 opening article. Some of these developments have challenged longstanding beliefs about the power and benefits of globalization and economic integration, but they also underscore the interconnected nature of global economies. Although many countries and regions around the world are closely linked, important differences in institutional and cultural environ- ments persist, and some of these differences have become even more pronounced in recent years.
The challenges for international management reflect this dynamism and the increasing unpredictability of global economic and political events. Continued growth of the emerging markets is reshaping the global balance of economic power, even though differences exist between and among regions and countries.
Further, some developed economies, such as Greece, Italy, Spain, and Portugal, continue to face formidable challenges that stem from the European debt crisis that began in The global political and security environment remains unpredictable and volatile, with ongoing conflicts in the Middle East and Africa and continuing tensions in Iran, North Korea, Iraq, and Afghanistan and elsewhere. Another crisis stemming from con- flict in Syria and elsewhere has resulted in mass migration—and broad dislocations— across North Africa and Southern, even Northern, Europe see Chapters 1 and 2 for further discussion.
On the economic front, the global trade and integration agenda seems stalled, largely due to domestic political pressures in Europe and North America.

Although the Trans-Pacific Partnership TPPa proposed free-trade agreement including 12 coun- tries in the Americas and Asia, was concluded, its ratification in the United States is uncertain. Similarly, the fate of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, which was still under negotiation at the time of this writing, is also unclear. As noted above, the advent of social networking has transformed the way citizens interact; how businesses market, promote, and distribute their products globally; and how ztrategy society expresses its concerns that governments provide greater freedoms and accountability.
Both social networking and mass col- laboration bring new kanagement and influence to individuals across borders and transform v www. Although globalization and technology continue to link nations, businesses, and individuals, these linkages also high- light the importance of understanding different cultures, national systems, manahement corporate management practices around the world.
International Management: Culture, Strategy, and Behavior | Tra Ngo –
The world is now interconnected geographically, but also electronically and psychologically; as such, nearly all businesses have been touched in some way by globalization. Yet, as cultural, political, and economic differ- ences persist, astute international managers must be in a position to adapt and adjust to the vagaries of different contexts and environments.
In this new tenth edition of International Management, we internatipnal retained the strong and effective foundations gained from research and practice over the past decades while incorporating the important latest research and contemporary insights that have changed the context and environment cculture international management.
Several trends have emerged that pose both challenges and opportunities for international managers. Second, while emerging markets continue to rise in importance, some—such as China managememt India—have fared much better economically than others—such as Brazil and Russia. Third, aging popu- lations and concerns about migration have challenged many developed country govern- ments as they wrestle with these dual pressures. Fourth, social media and other forms of electronic connectivity continue to facilitate international business of all sorts; how- ever, these connection go only so far, with many barriers and limitations imposed by governments.
Although we have extensive new, evidence-based material in this edition, we cultrue to strive to make the book even more user-friendly and applicable to prac- tice.
We continue to take a internationap approach in the tenth edition of International Management: Culture, Strategy, and Behavior.
Whereas mangement texts stress culture, strategy, or behavior, our emphasis on all three critical dimensions—and the interac- tions among them—has been a primary reason why the previous editions have been the market-leading international management text. Specifically, this edition has the following chapter distribution: Because the context of international management changes rapidly, all lkthans chapters have been updated and improved.
New real-world examples and research results are integrated throughout the book, accentuating the experiential relevance of the straightforward content. As stratevy, we emphasize a balance of research and application. We have updated discussion of a range of contemporary topics, including continued exploration of the role of the comprehensive GLOBE study on cross-cultural leadership.
An end-of-book feature is a series of Skill-Building and Experiential Exercises for aspiring international managers. These in-class exercises bdhavior the various parts of the text culture, strategy, and behavior and provide hands-on experience. Many of these opening articles are new to this edition and all have been updated. These timely opening discussions transition the reader into the chapter topic. Answering these questions requires readers to reconsider and to draw from the chapter material.
The use and application of cases vulture further enhanced in this edition. All cases have been updated and several new ones have been added. These have all been revised and three have been added—Cuba, Greece, and Nigeria.
Review questions provided for each case are intended to facilitate lively and productive writ- ten analysis or in-class discussion.
These two formats allow maximum flexibility so that instructors can use the cases in a tailored and customized fashion. The cases have been extensively updated and several are new to this edition. Of course, instructors also have access to Create www.
Strategy casebooks and specialized books janagement organizational behavior, human resources, and, of course, international business, finance, marketing, and eco- nomics preceded it, but there were no international management texts before this one, and it remains the market leader. We have had sustainability because of the effort and care put into the revisions. This seamless integration of reading, practice, and assessment ensures that the focus is on the most important content for that individual.
