The late Professor Alan Rugman was one of the pioneers and leading eminent scholars in the field of international business. He was a strong advocate for international business research as a main and stand-alone research field. This e-book is dedicated to him for his endless intellectual contributions to the international business field. The six papers in this e-book are focused on extending Rugman’s CSA/FSA framework, and regional multinational theory. Four of these papers were presented at the Rugman Memorial sessions of the Reading-UNCTAD IB Conference in June 2015 at the Henley Business School, University of Reading.
