This text is enormously helpful taking a very contemporary approach to culture and international management. Key principles and themes are discussed in depth in language that is easy to engage with using diverse industry and country 'Practical Perspectives' case studies. Each chapter ends with a summary, key questions and exercises that assist student revision. This material also assists the lecturer with formative and summative assessment design. A very clear text that explores key topics in depth. An invaluable resource.

I like the short examples/cases in the green boxes. Easy for students to read.

This textbook covers all the essential functions of management using a cultural approach. It offers that overview by providing relevant examples, it's up-dated, and not only written from an US-American point of view. I can very recommend this textbook for any management course dealing with cultural matters.

One of the best books on international management from a cultural perspective. Many different case studies have been included in the second edition.

A good source that encompass a wide range of materials, but the content lacks the depth that i require for postgraduate level.

Some chapters in this book (e.g., negotiation and communication) are more on the side of improving inter-personal skills, but I was looking for a book which can provide more insights on how to manage and lead in multinational corporations.
