In this well-written work, global strategy consultants Fairbanks and Lindsay address the issue of competitiveness in the developing world and advance ways to build and sustain macro, long-term competitive advantage. The authors first identify seven opportunities for leveraging a country's comparative advantage, among them improving understanding of customers, reasoning and overcoming defensiveness, and avoiding paternalism. They then discuss strategies to implement these opportunities. Finally, they offer models for action. With a foreword by Michael Porter (business administration, Harvard), this excellent book is highly recommended for academic libraries as well as for corporate executives and government officials.?Joseph W.
