"This volume is an excellent contribution to the literature on emerging multinationals. But what I particularly liked about this particular group of essays was that, following four carefully written and analytical robust chapters on the origin and determinants of the foreign activities of emerging MNEs, there followed eight quite distinctive and original case studies of those new forms of investment by particular home countries. Inter alia these revealed that each emerging country has its own particular reasons and agenda for investing outside its national boundaries. Altogether, I found this a first rate and eminently readable group of essays. The volume deserves the widest attention of government, the business community, and academic scholars alike."
John H. Dunning, State of New Jersey Professor Emeritus, Rutgers University, and Emeritus Professor of International Business, Reading University
"Ramamurti and Singh have masterfully engineered a productive confrontation between extant theorizing in international business and the empirical phenomenon of newer multinationals from emerging markets. All scholarship is enriched as a result."
Tarun Khanna, Jorge Paulo Lemann Professor, Harvard Business School, and author of Billions of Entrepreneurs: How China and India Are Reshaping Their Future and Yours (2008)
"Just as every person discovers his own path in life, so too with companies and countries. This is a fascinating book with that comments on the multiple pathways adopted by emerging countries in their quest for globalization. An exhilarating read, a wondrous experience."
R. Gopalakrishnan, Executive Director, TATA Sons Ltd
"Multinational enterprises from emerging markets are in the process of transforming the world FDI market. This book goes a long way in analyzing the main players in this process and the forces driving it, and does so in a very illuminating way."
Karl Sauvant, Executive Director, Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment
"Ramamurti and Singh make an outstanding contribution to understanding the new configuration of world markets and its new competitive structure. As the different country studies show, multinationals from emerging economies share a number of common structural features, as well as the imprinting of specific local experiences. For managers and business practitioners, the book offers valuable tips on how to shape the new international order."
Henrique Rzezinski, Chairman, Brazil-US Business Council
"Emerging Multinationals in Emerging Markets is a fascinating and timely volume that will be of great value not only to students of international business theory but also to practitioners heading emerging world multinationals and those in the developed world competing with them. As a long time executive of an EMNE, and now heading an association of CEOs of EMNEs, I found the case studies in Part 2 to be particularly interesting."
