Renowned international experts Peter B. Smith, Mark F. Peterson, and David C. Thomas, editors of the new The Handbook of Cross-Cultural Management, have drawn together scholars in the field of management from around the world to contribute vital information from their cross-national studies to this innovative, comprehensive tome.
