The Nature of the Firm in the Oil Industry: International Oil Companies in Global Business

The Nature of the Firm in the Oil Industry: International Oil Companies in Global Business by Basak Beyazay

Firm-to-firm relationships, along with the overall structure of industry, have changed markedly over the past decades. Replacing the model of vertical integration with one of global business, firms have started to outsource more by using a wider global network. At the same time, they have begun to increase their control and coordination along the value chain to remain competitive, blurring the boundaries between companies. Understanding the nature of the firm and its role in coordinating the supply chain will help firms to better define global competitive strategies.. The challenges that lie...

How the Internet Became Commercial: Innovation, Privatization, and the Birth of a New Network

How the Internet Became Commercial: Innovation, Privatization, and the Birth of a New Network by Shane Greenstein

In less than a decade, the Internet went from being a series of loosely connected networks used by universities and the military to the powerful commercial engine it is today. This book describes how many of the key innovations that made this possible came from entrepreneurs and iconoclasts who were outside the mainstream—and how the commercialization of the Internet was by no means a foregone conclusion at its outset.

Shane Greenstein traces the evolution of the Internet from government ownership to privatization to the commercial Internet we know today. This is a story of innovation from the...

World Heritage, Tourism and Identity: Inscription and Co-production

World Heritage, Tourism and Identity: Inscription and Co-production by Laurent Professor Bourdeau

The remarkable success of the 1972 UNESCO Convention Concerning the Protection of World Cultural and Natural Heritage is borne out by the fact that nearly 1,000 properties have now been designated as possessing Outstanding Universal Value and recognition given to the imperative for their protection. However, the remarkable success of the Convention is not without its challenges and a key issue for many Sites relates to the touristic legacies of inscription. For many sites inscription on the World Heritage List acts as a promotional device and the management challenge is one of protection, conservation...

Maritime Networks: Spatial structures and time dynamics

Maritime Networks: Spatial structures and time dynamics by C?sar Ducruet

Maritime transport is one of the most ancient supports to human interactions across history and it still supports more than 90% of world trade volumes today. The changing connectivity of maritime networks is of crucial importance to port, transport, and economic development and planning. The way ports, terminals, but also cities, regions and countries, are connected with each other through maritime flows is not well-known and difficult to represent and measure, even for the transport actors themselves. There is a strong, urgent need for reviewing the relevant theories, concepts, methods, and...

Thirsty Dragon: China's Lust for Bordeaux and the Threat to the World's Best Wines

Thirsty Dragon: China's Lust for Bordeaux and the Threat to the World's Best Wines by Suzanne Mustacich

An inside view of China's quest to become a global wine power and Bordeaux's attempt to master the thirsty dragon it helped create

The wine merchants of Bordeaux and the rising entrepreneurs of China would seem to have little in common—old world versus new, tradition versus disruption, loyalty versus efficiency. And yet these two communities have found their destinies intertwined in the conquest of new markets, as Suzanne Mustacich shows in this provocative account of how China is reshaping the French wine business and how Bordeaux is making its mark on China.

Explaining Railway Reform in China: A Train of Property Rights Re-arrangements

Explaining Railway Reform in China: A Train of Property Rights Re-arrangements by Linda Tjia Yin-nor

Having been state-owned for decades, the railway reform in China confused many people, particularly in terms of its ownership and property rights arrangements. Western literature always prescribes that the best model for railway reform is privatization. China's leadership has also enunciated the state's determination to re-arrange property rights and rejuvenate corporate governance. But is China's railway reform really a story of convergence and will the Chinese government follow the western model of railway reform?

Addressing these questions, this book provides a positive explanation of the...

Commercial Space Exploration: Ethics, Policy and Governance

Commercial Space Exploration: Ethics, Policy and Governance by Dr. Jai GalliottNot since man set foot on the moon over four decades ago has there been such passion and excitement about space exploration. This enthusiasm and eagerness has been spurred on by the fact that for the first time since the very beginning of the space age, space travel is no longer limited to an elite group of highly trained and well-disciplined military officers and test pilots. Instead, we must understand that the possibility of commercial space travel is already on our horizon and that it comes with a number of significant practical and moral challenges. Our level of scientific development and...
