"This resourceful hands-on business strategy book is the essential guide to doing business in, with and across Europe. It covers all the most relevant business issues: ranging from e-Privacy and PSD2 to artificial intelligence in European Marketing, from Horizon 2020 to FP9, from HR policies and refugee effects, to Brexit and its impact on the future of trade and investment across the continent and beyond. The concepts are clear and actionable, the case studies are most illustrative – challenging the reader to explore and understand how to effectively shape and drive cross-border market expansion in Europe. Read and study this book: Learn from the best."
Candace Johnson, CEO and Chairman of the board, Succès Europe SA

"This new edition of Doing Business in Europe addresses head-on many of the most pressing issues for the international economy – the big questions of regional integration both within the European Union and between the EU and the rest of the world. It does so from a sound basis in international business theory and, using invaluable case illustrations, shows how the firm level, country and regional levels interact to create the region-specific multi-country advantages that lie at the heart of the desire for integration. Against this backdrop, it explains the stresses and strains that are all-too-apparent today, such as the disruptive effects of Brexit, pluri-lateralism, participation in Global Value Chains and the future of the Single Market and its payment, taxation and funding mechanisms."

Jeremy Clegg, Professor of European Integration and International Business Management, Leeds University Business School


Handbook of Research on Managing Managers

Handbook of Research on Managing Managers
Edited by Adrian Wilkinson, Professor of Employment Relations, Griffith University, Keith Townsend, Associate Professor of Employment Relations, Griffith Business School, Griffith University and Gabriele Suder, Principal Fellow, Melbourne Business School, The University of Melbourne, Australia
ISBN 978 1 78347 428 8

This book explores the changing role of managers in the workplace.
In recent years, there has been considerable debate on the future of management, with both pessimistic and optimistic views being put forward. However, in the wake of delayering, downsizing, re-engineering and the pursuit of leanness, the more gloomy perspective has gained currency, especially in the popular managerial literature, and some have pronounced the end of management altogether. Some paint a more optimistic picture of managers and managers’ work with roles being transformed rather than replaced and the new organisational context providing more demanding work but greater autonomy and increased skill development.
With contributions from experts in the field, this book is concerned with the way organisations manage their managers and how this continues to evolve with reference to global issues.

‘This exciting and comprehensive Handbook brings together leading international HR scholars to review existing research and highlight the current and future cross-cutting issues and challenges facing managerial practice and education. It is a particularly stimulating read in defining the field and setting the future research agenda.’

– Susan Cartwright, Lancaster University, UK

International Business under Adversity

International Business under Adversity
ISBN 978 1 84720 374 8


While Golda Meir was Prime Minister of Israel she shared her hopes for humanity:
"I hope that some day, perhaps not in my time or my children's time, but in my grandchildren's time, war will become like cannibalism, completely unthinkable."
For war to be unthinkable, business must be a part of the solution. Gabriele Suder's new volume recognizes the imperative of peace and brings many of the best thinkers in the world together to ask how the private sector can contribute to a peaceful future for our planet.
With strikingly new ideas, International Business under Adversity is must reading for business leaders and students alike.

Corporate Strategies under International Terrorism and Adversity

Corporate Strategies under International Terrorism and Adversity
ISBN 978 1 84542 241 7


The true nature of the threat remains poorly understood, and previously little research has been done on it. This book is an important contribution for concerned practitioners and scholars.

-Yves Doz, Insead, France

Corporate Strategies under International Terrorism and Adversity raises key issues facing international business and management in an era of global uncertainty.


Terrorism and the International Business Environment

Terrorism and the International Business Environment
ISBN 978 1 84376 801 2

This book was born from the editor's conviction that a wide set of contributors should provide the
economic and corporate sectors with guidelines, developed from rigorous research and case studies,
to analyse those adjustments made necessary through international terrorism, as known since
September 11th 2001. It argues that corporate asset protection and accurate business risk assessment is vital to the longevity, and resilience of business.

The volume reveals how the pre-9/11-era of contemporary economic history gave birth to a nexus of a) globalisation b) increased systemic vulnerability and complexity and c) the transitions of terrorism. As a result, the post-9/11-era is one which should incorporate risk analysis audits on a regular basis, political and geopolitical risk research, the use of quantitative risk assessment and qualitative risk analysis to implement risk strategy planning, its management and appropriate risk transfer considerations.
