International Business Law and Its Environment, International Edition
INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS LAW AND ITS ENVIRONMENT, 8e, International
Edition centers on the basic market-entry strategies most firms
deploy as they expand into international markets: trade in goods
and services, protecting and licensing intellectual property, and
foreign direct investment. Interweaving the law with ethics-related
issues, the text shows how individual firms manage these strategies
in different ways while discussing the latest political, economic,
and legal developments around the world. Helpful features such as
case examples, end-of-chapter questions, and ethics activities help
solidify your understanding of the material.
