Editorial Reviews


`a book that offers some profound observations - indeed, wisdom - about an emerging view of the contemporary firm and its functions. This view is global in scope and interdisciplinary in nature ... The editors have done a great job in planning, organizing, and integrating the chapters and ensuring consistency across them ... A measure of a good book is that it opens up debate on important issues. If this is true, then this is a great book that raises important questions, provides a lucid discussion of them, and offers many insights that can guide future theory development ... this is a magnificent book - one that should be widely read, discussed, and debated. Provocative, well documented, and well written, it adds richly to the literature and to our understanding of emerging theories of organizations. The Dynamic Firm is a book that will profoundly shape our thinking as well as the future of scholarship in our field.' Shaker A Zahra, Academy of Management Review, October 1999

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jong Ho Lee on July 20, 2001
Format: Paperback
First of all, this edited book is designed to bring together multi-displinary academic areas, not least business studies, economics and economic geography, which are interested in the dynamics of the firm. It is nice and well structured in terms of economics of the firm. However, from a viewpoint of an economic geographer, some of papers which talk about economic geography of the corporate organisation are too plain, old fashioned. Nevertheless, it is recommended that this book illustrates excellent combination of attempts to understand the firm as a container, seeker and creater of competence itself.
