"The role of communication, in general, and high speed management in particular in the new global economy is of particular importance to world politicians and business people if they are to compete effectively in the world marketplace of the next few decades. The significance of the new communication technologies in these developments, with their lasting impact on both the public and private sectors, is particularly noteworthy. This book provides such perspectives, and goes beyond the usual limited view of single authorship books in this area." — Richard J. Dieker, Western Michigan University
"I like the number of perspectives on an under-considered topic of great current importance, this is global management as distinct from multinational management. The culture insights by trained observers are both instructive and useful. They are helpful in understanding other dimensions of cross-cultural interactions, for example in political and other arenas, as well as the global management focus here. The cultural diversity represented among the authors themselves contributes greatly to the insights and the reader's comfort with their reliability." — Robert C. Morris, Executive Director, Management Training and Development Institute
"This book relates three dimensions of the current trend of globalization: integration of the world economy, management of global corporations, and processes of organizational communication. In addition to being timely and relevant, the book offers cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary perspectives." — Branislav Kovacic, University of Hartford
