`A highly effective analysis of the changing patterns of competition viewed from an international perspective. There is a plethora of books on globalization and internationalization of industries, but most are long on words and speculation, but short on hard evidence and perspective. Here, the approach of the authors is not to argue that the world is becoming more (or less) global, but to provide a valuable insight into just how these forces are shaping industries, whether managers can influence these forces and what they might mean for those involve'- Charles Baden-Fuller, City Business School, Series Editor

`This text provides a framework for understanding international competitive systems and formulating international business strategy. In the dialogue between practitioners and a groups of researchers, theoretical insights and practical methods are provided, as well as a case of organic theory built upon contextual practical knowledge. Theories of industry-based global competition are developed and the interactions between structural forces at the industry level and competitive actions at the level of the individual business are explored. Qualitative data are used, including interviews with executives in charge of international strategy in 122 firms and ten countries, notably to develop such topics as: dynamics of segmentation, regional competitive territories, tension between integration and differentiation and strategic variations' - International Review of Adminstrative Sciences
