DescriptionContentsAuthors

A comprehensive picture of the Greek business system and management practices placed in a comparative context. The editors bring together knowledge from contemporary research in a comprehensive, analytical and comparative way that enables readers to see the Greek system in a holistic way.

The first part presents the politics, economics, finance, law, development and innovation systems. The second part describes business and management practices within firms including strategic management, international business, human resource management, marketing, sales, total quality management, accounting and auditing.

The final part brings together and discusses the whole complex picture in light of comparative data from other EU business systems including Italy, Ireland, Spain, Portugal and the UK. It is an excellent resource for students, academics, researchers and practitioners interested in Greece.
