About this book

This book provides a deep understanding of state-owned multinationals (SOMNCs) and their role in global business. SOMNCs have emerged as a force to contend with in global competition, and their study connects several fields such as economics, political economy, international business and global strategy. This prestigious collection of articles presents insights into the interaction between government ownership and internationalization, and aims to provoke new research approaches and insights on the topic. The book includes some of the key contributions to our understanding of these firms and new commentaries explaining how to analyze them. This book is essential reading for academics and consultants looking to gain a clearer understanding of SOMNCs and how to research them.

Reviews

“In this excellent volume, Cuervo-Cazurra compiles some of the best articles on the international behavior of state-owned enterprises, including classics by stalwarts like Yair Aharoni and Raymond Vernon. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the theoretical and empirical questions raised by the cross-border operation of state entities.” (Ravi Ramamurti, D’Amore-McKim School of Business Distinguished Professor and Director, Center for Emerging Markets, Northeastern University, USA)
