"International Entrepreneurship in Family Businesses" shows that family firms have always been active agents in the global economy and that their participation in the international competitive dynamic will only increase in the coming years. Many of the large multinational firms that dominate today's world markets were family firms, and many of them continue to be. The authors endeavour to offer a holistic, multi-paradigmatic, open and global stance on family firms, which takes into account the particularities of this phenomenon. Their work is an attempt to integrate intensive studies of family business that encompass wide-ranging areas of research including psychology, sociology, organizational behaviour, financial studies, and strategic management. Practical examples and case studies of multinational family firms underpin the exploratory empirical research.
