It brings together leading scholars from both disciplines in a wide-ranging volume that is sure to be essential reading for anyone interested in the many theoretical and empirical intersections that span these fields.' - Professor Andrew Jones, Vice-President (Research and Enterprise), City, University of London 'This comprehensive volume shows that International Business and Economic Geography are cognate, linked and complementary fields of endeavour.
