There are many texts available on International Business, but only a few provide a comprehensive coverage of emerging markets, which now play a major role in global business and therefore require deeper study and analysis.
This accessible and engaging text focuses solely on these markets and provides extensive coverage. BRICs and other major emerging markets are examined in-depth. Prominent topics regarding emerging markets such as effects of globalization, rise of disposable income, urbanization, economic reforms, new opportunities as well as characteristics of multinationals and domestic firms within such markets are discussed. Real life examples, detailed data and graphs provide a comprehensive framework for a thorough understanding.
This fully revised and updated edition reflects the current issues, changes, challenges and opportunities facing businesses in emerging markets, including entry and negotiation processes, as well as risks and strategies.
The text is accompanied by a companion website which includes full text articles for each chapter, answers to end of chapter questions, and detailed chapter slides for tutors.
This text is essential reading for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students studying international business and emerging markets as well as practitioners who want to increase their understanding of such markets.

Version 2.0, Updated and Expanded, with a New Afterword
We all sense it—something big is going on. You feel it in your workplace. You feel it when you talk to your kids. You can’t miss it when you read the newspapers or watch the news. Our lives are being transformed in so many realms all at once—and it is dizzying.
In Thank You for Being Late, version 2.0, with a new afterword, Thomas L. Friedman exposes the tectonic movements that are reshaping the world today and explains how to get the most out of them and cushion their worst impacts. His thesis: to understand the twenty-first century, you need to understand that the planet’s three largest forces—Moore’s law (technology), the Market (globalization), and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loss)—are accelerating all at once. These accelerations are transforming five key realms: the workplace, politics, geopolitics, ethics, and community. The year 2007 was the major inflection point: the release of the iPhone, together with advances in silicon chips, software, storage, sensors, and networking, created a new technology platform that is reshaping everything from how we hail a taxi to the fate of nations to our most intimate relationships. It is providing vast new opportunities for individuals and small groups to save the world—or to destroy it.
With his trademark vitality, wit, and optimism, Friedman shows that we can overcome the multiple stresses of an age of accelerations—if we slow down, if we dare to be late and use the time to reimagine work, politics, and community. Thank You for Being Late is an essential guide to the present and the future.
