This book provides a bridge between actual, and expected, U.S. trade policies and the financial, marketing, operational, organizational, and strategic aspects of corporate business policy. It grew out of the first annual International Business Education and Research Program (IBEAR) Research and Management Workshop held at USC. Individual papers were written by different authors and have been heavily edited by Professors Agmon and Hekman who have also added a general introduction, introductions to the parts, and linking sections between chapters. This book is the only source for the ideas it presents since the papers have not, and will not, be published more

Review quote

Individually the papers are of a consistently good standard, and they are 'stitched' together well by the editors through the use of brief introductions to each chapter. The result is a very worthwhile volume that deserves to be widely read by students of trade policy....Certainly instructive. * The World Economy *show more
