For undergraduate courses in economic geography, international trade, international business, international marketing, and international development, this text provides a theoretical and practical foundation for understanding the global economy in an era of shifting borders, restructuring economies, and regional realignments. It combines economic theory with geography in addressing critical problems of growth, distribution, and development, and to explain their impact on international business. Geopolitical changes are portrayed in a series of full colour maps and photographs. Real-world examples are used in an attempt to make abstract concepts understandable. The book provides a global perspective on international business through a pragmatic world view. Topics include family structure, gender roles, and the division of labour. They also include coverage of geographic information systems, worldwide websites, statistical considerations, and more
