Description - Transnational Corporations by Grazia Ietto-Gillies
Recent years have seen a dramatic increase in international production worldwide, accompanied by considerable changes in its geographical structure. This volume examines the role of transnational corporations (TNCs) in the geography of international production, covering both theoretical and empirical aspects. The book is structured into four parts: * Part one: introduces transnational corporations in their integration role; analyses the various types of international transactions in which they are involved, providing empirical evidence * Part two: considers a variety of business networks from both empirical and theoretical perspectives * Part three: presents an analysis of the impact that strategies of organisational and locational fragmentation have on transnationals and their activities * Part four: presents a theoretical analysis of the globalisation process and the role of TNCs; identifies the TNC and the information and communication technologies as the dominant cause of the process, and draws the theoretical and policy implications of this.
This work will be of essential interest to scholars, policy-makers and professionals in the areas of international business strategy, international economics and political science.
