This volume offers a broad social scientific view of 'the firm'. Regarded as an agent of change in society, the firm is as fully conditioned by the environment in which it operates. This requires that actors participating in the evolution of firms are involved in an ongoing coordination process.
This important book is the latest in the Routledge Studies in Global Competition series and will prove to be an outstanding contribution to evolutionary political economy, economic geography and business economics as whole.
