Origins of Globalization draws widely on ancient sources and modern economic theory to detail the concept of “known world” globalization, arguing that a mixed economy--similar in many respects to our own--existed in a variety of forms throughout the ancient world. By analyzing the business practices of the ancient world--phenomena such as resource and market seeking behavior, international trade from China, India and Rome, to Africa and even northern and western parts of Europe, Small and Medium Size Enterprises (SMEs) operating internationally and outsourcing production, multicultural  workforces, tariff reduced zones, interregional tax issues, and the management of  currency risks--the authors provide readers with a unique historical interpretation of the contemporary globalizing economy and a durable theoretical framework for future historical economic analyses.

'This book shows that business globalisation is as old as the Pyramids. Modern readers can gain a much broader perspective on how to deal with today’s opportunities and challenges' George Yip, Beckwith Professor of Management Studies, Cambridge University

'A must read for anyone interested in the evolution and future of multinationals' Vijay Govindarajan, Earl C. Daum 1924 Professor of International Business, The Amos Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College
