"Organizational Behavior: Global Multicultural Perspectives," reflects the authors' passion for, and deep commitment to, a multicultural, multi-faceted understanding of human behavior and its impact on the workplace.

Crises and scandals in the world of international management have brought a new spotlight onto how the subject is taught, studied and understood. There has been a plethora of literature on international management, but a lack of focus on how international management education (IME) can be shaped to respond to existing and future global business challenges. The Routledge Companion to International Management Education gathers together contributors from academia, industry and university administration involved in IME, to: introduce the domain of IME; describe the emerging state in new geographical areas; discuss the major issues and debates revolving around IME; explore the linkage of technology and international management, and shed light on the future of IME. The diverse background of the contributors provides a global perspective that challenges the dominant Anglo-American view, with up-to-date specific insights originating from their indigenous view points, which has often been neglected and inadequately covered. The volume answers important questions, such as: Do we need a vision in IME? What is the current state of IME? How has IME grown in emerging market segments? What roles does technology play in its recent development? The volume provides thought-provoking reading for educators, administrators, policy makers, human resources professionals and researchers. It will also give future international management students a glimpse of IME from a global inside-out perspective.

Management strategies to help you profit in the international realm! What is the most effective way to help an expatriate employee learn to function in the host country? How well do we understand the formation and performance of multinational alliances? Should you threaten to sue your Chinese distributor, or is friendliness a better tactic? These questions are among the issues tackled in Culture and International Business, a practical look at a complex topic. Increasingly, corporations and businesses are transnational or multinational in scope and culture in a way that was unimaginable a generation ago. Employees may be assigned to work overseas or deal with customers, suppliers, distributors, or factories across the globe. Even in domestic offices, employees from several different countries may work side by side. If you want your business to prosper in this new global economy, you must understand the effects of cultural differences on business practices or else risk making costly, potentially disastrous errors. Culture and International Business offers practical ideas and tested research on such vital topics of concern as: defining the moral, ethical, and legal implications of multicultural management attracting and retaining key personnel persuading employees in the host country to mentor an expatriate overcoming divisive cultural differences working within the guanxi relationship networks of China creating sustainable development strategies becoming aware of different attitudes toward change, gender, and risk-taking A genuinely multinational effort, the seven chapters of Culture and International Business were written by authors representing five nations on three continents.

Human mobility has been a defining feature of human social evolution. In a global community, the term "mobility" captures the full gamut of types, directions, and patterns of human movement. The psychology of mobility is important because movement is inherently behavioral. Much of the behavioral study of mobility has focused on the negative – examining the trauma of forced migration, or the health consequences of the lack of adaptation – but this work looks into the benefits of mobility, such as its impact on career capital and well-being. Recent years have witnessed a phenomenal increase in efforts to understand human mobility, by social scientists, think-tanks, and policymakers alike. The book focuses on the transformational potential of mobility for human development. The book details the historical, methodological, and theoretical trajectory of human mobility (Context), followed by sections on pre-departure incentives and predispositions (Motivation), influences on acculturation, health and community fit (Adjustment), and changes in career capital, overcoming bias, and diaspora networks (Performance).
