About this book

Huawei Goes Global provides a much-needed, comprehensive, and scholarly examination of the business environment and the striving global operations of China’s technology giant. With theoretical research, case studies, data analysis, and empirical studies, this two-volume work tells a fascinating story of internationalization in an emerging economy. As one of the most powerful Chinese companies in the global economy, the largest global telecommunications-equipment producer and a leading consumer-electronics manufacturer, Huawei is a great example of the globalization of the Chinese enterprises in the twenty-first century.

In Volume I, scholars critically examine the rise of Huawei as a Chinese global enterprise from the political economy and public policy perspectives, as well as Huawei’s development strategies, innovations, and talent management. In Volume II, multiple authors carefully study the growth of Huawei from regional and geopolitical perspectives, and its corporate communication and crisis management.  

Within the framework of the trade conflicts between China and the US, controversies over economic sanctions, intellectual-property disputes, and espionage and cyber security concerns, this groundbreaking work makes an important contribution to both academic literature and the ongoing public discourse on Huawei.

Reviews

“It is amazing from a librarian’s perspective to learn about the Chinese global enterprise Huawei from this well researched two volumes as written by knowledgeable scholars. In view of the current trade conflicts between the U.S. and China, as well as espionage and cybersecurity concerns pointed at Huawei, this scholarly publication about every aspects of Huawei will be a timely addition to all library collections and be eagerly awaited by their readers.” (Dr. Hwa-Wei Lee, Retired former Chief of Asian Division, Library of Congress, Dean of Libraries Emeritus, Ohio University)

“The mystery surrounding Huawei is thick: Is it a private company, or is it an extension of the state? Is it a typical or atypical firm in the Chinese political and economic systems?  Answering these questions is important for the international business community to understand not only Huawei, but also the Chinese business environment.  However, due precisely to the lack of publicly available and verifiable information, studying Huawei remains a dunning task. The effort by Wenxian Zhang, Ilan Alon and Christoph Lattemann to edit the 2-volume book, Huawei Goes Global: Made in China for the World greatly contributes to fill the glaring gap and therefore is timely and much welcomed. The book critically examines Huawei’s rise and globalization, providing a valuable source for understanding this important and unique organization and its role in the global trade conflict and restructuring.” (Shaomin Li, Eminent Scholar and Professor, Old Dominion University, Author of Bribery and Corruption in Weak Institutional Environments)

“Perhaps no companies are more intriguing and mysterious than Huawei Technologies. It has developed from an unknown telecom company focusing on rural businesses in China to a global technology giant facing tremendous geopolitical uncertainty. Is Huawei similar to any other multinational corporation in developing its competitive advantages? Are existing theories in international business sufficient to explain Huawei’s global footprints and global challenges? Professors Zhang, Alon, and Lattemann have edited two timely volumes of studies written by scholars from political science and business to shed light on these questions. I highly recommend these books to you. The diverse topics and approaches provide new perspectives much needed to understand international business and politics.” (Dr. Jing Li, Associate Professor of International Business, Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University)

“This book offers a comprehensive description of the Chinese rush for innovation supremacy, through the extraordinary case of Huawei. The analysis of the strategic choices, growth paths and the conquered innovation capacity of Huawei, guides the reader in understanding the specificities of the internationalization processes of Chinese companies. It is a must-read book to understand the rush of China towards the 2049 goal of becoming a World leader for Innovation.” (Dr. Francesca Spigarelli, Prof. of Applied Economics and Director of China Center at University of Macerata; Vice Rector for European Research Policy and Third Mission; Member of the Chinese Globalization Association)
