This volume concentrates on the substantive gaps in the IB/IM field and addresses whether these gaps are resolvable with our current theoretical and methodological toolkit.

In addressing these `rising' phenomena we need to ask whether or not our theories have the required explanatory and predictive powers and whether or not we have the tools to effectively dissect and deconstruct these `rising' phenomena?

The volume focuses on seven themes: (1) The Emerging Themes in IB/IM, (2) Managerial Behavior in the IB/IM Context, (3) Culture, (4) People, Systems and Organizations, (5) Knowledge/Innovation, (6) Internationalization, and (7) Emerging Markets. Within each theme leading scholars address the above questions and posit their opinions on the past and future of international business and management.
