Abstract

This introduction is for volume four of a five volume set, namely: Cross-Cultural Management. Each volume comprises foundational, cutting-edge, and less accessible research carefully selected and collated by the editors, two leading scholars in the field, as well as newly written introductions. The introductions are designed not just to place the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, but also to explain the relationships between the gathered works and to identify additional and promising areas of research. Together, the five volumes provide an essential one-stop resource for academics, students, policymakers, and practitioners seeking to understand a critical aspect of contemporary business management within an increasingly global economy.
