Organizations and International Management: Global Themes and Local Variations offers a unique, sophisticated exposition of the impact that globalization has had on organizational practices and forms on the local level. This edited collection is the first to capture the complexity of modern management and organizations that results from global diffusion. The management of organizations is founded on assumptions of universality (decision making, profit seeking, employee satisfaction), yet the reality is that there is enormous variation across social contexts. Multinational corporations have to adjust their practices to adhere to national regulations, or tailor their consumer products to local tastes. This collection goes beyond merely describing these patterns of variation and adaptation; it engages directly with the tensions between homogeneity and heterogeneity, convergence and divergence, global and local. With contributions from international scholars ' ; including Roland Robertson, Dirk Matten, Andrew Crane and Sigrid Quack ' ; this book offers a substantive contribution to the field of organizational studies. It will prove a valuable resource for students on advanced courses in organization studies, international business, and sociology.
