This is one of the best research pieces of it's kind and an absolute joy to read and digest. Dunning is a superb analyst of business activity and one of the foremost writers ever in this area. His books are to be enjoyed as well as used in designing policies affecting the performance and behaviors of international companies. In short, this is the best book of it's kind published so early in the developing field of analysis of company behavior. Well done, John!
