This classic handbook presents a major retrospective and prospective overview of the strategic management field, comprising an important "benchmark" volume for management scholars worldwide. The Handbook frames, assesses and synthesizes the work in the field and helps to define and shape its current and future development. The editors have sought to combine focus with diversity in the material and approaches covered, thus providing a powerful critical analysis and synthesis of diverse disciplinary contributions to this rapidly growing body of knowledge.Each of the four parts of this book concentrates on a specific area of strategy and management. Within these sections, leading international scholars provide historical overviews of the key strands delineating the "topography" of their particular themes, address the central problems and approaches which have characterized these, critically assess the state and quality of current theory and knowledge, and set out agendas for future theoretical and empirical development.
