...this is an excellent book to read and have... it ought to be read widely by those that are interested in and studying economics, business and management.
Miroslav, N. Jovanovic, Economia Internazionale, vol. LVIII, 3: 386, 2005.

...this volume will be very useful to readers such as students of IB and for related courses at the undergraduate and postgraduate level, ... and lecturers and researchers who wish to have an over view of the subject .... I will ... recommend this book to my students and colleagues.
Ana Teresa C.P. Tavares, Transnational Corporations, 15, 3: 205-8

The book is a concise and indicative source that familiarises the reader with theoretical developments on the subject ...Theories are presented in an easily understandable way, and considerable space is devoted to comments and critical remarks on the theories presented.
Christoph Dorrenbacher, Geschichte Transnational, 12, June 2005.

The author ... favours an approach to internationalization rooted in political economy, where nations are viewed as more than simple geographical constructs, but rather constitute a collection of diverse regulatory regimes.
Howard Cox, Long Range Planning, 40, 6: 630-32, Dec 2007.

This book provides a truly excellent span and depth of coverage of alternative theories and perspectives on ... TNCs and their effects on countries. It should be a compulsory text for anyone teaching in these fields, and essential reading for any postgraduate student or scholar starting out in this area.'
John Cantwell, Rutgers University, US  

'Although globalisation has stimulated competition in the world economy, significant market power remains in the hands of transnational corporations; particularly in software, pharmaceuticals and other high-technology industries. The rapid rise of transnationals in the second half of the twentieth century provoked a wealth of research. This book provides an admirably concise yet comprehensive account of the role of transnationals in the global economy, based on this research. It stands alone as the most authoritative and up-to-date survey of theory, evidence and policy in this field.' - Mark Casson, University of Reading, UK

'Professor Grazia Ietto-Gillies has produced an extremely useful account of the economic and business aspects of multinational production. It is particularly useful to have previous work summarised and reported, with the development of theories and analysis over time described and discussed. This book will be invaluable for courses on international business.' - Jonathan Michie, Birmingham Business School, UK"
