Regional Economic Integration


Michele U. Fratianni


This edited volume bravely and successfully tackles a number of issues of critical importance to international business scholars.  Each of the distinguished authors brings a fresh and rigorous approach to the impact of regional integration on distance costs; and to our understanding of the geography and performance of MNEs.  I particularly appreciated the chapters on the interaction between terrorism, trade and fdi flows.  This is an under-researched area, and the editor and his colleagues are to be congratulated on making a valuable contribution to this topic.
