"This thought provoking book builds on existing research traditions that make small business, entrepreneurship and family business a resource rich arena for study. It steps back to ask fundamental questions that every researcher should consider prior to engaging in data collection. It focuses on topics that have traditionally frustrated researchers including experimental methods in small business research, scale development, control variables and language issues in cross cultural research.
The distinguished authors also address subjects such as theory development and testing in entrepreneurship, as well as determining if progress in research has been made and how that can be measured. Critically, many of the chapters highlight ways in which research can be both practical yet theoretically important.
Bringing together quantitative and qualitative techniques and taking an investigative approach almost totally ignored in entrepreneurship research, this unique volume will be of special interest to anyone studying small and family businesses or entrepreneurship and business."--Back cover

Hailing from America, Europe and the Middle East, the authors of Global Marketing provide a truly international and comparative perspective to the study of marketing. Examples are provided from across the continents encompassing small and medium enterprises (SMEs). In addition, well-researched multinational companies are explored and give justice to the breadth and depth of this field. Cases on well-known companies, such as Disney, Starbucks, Wal-Mart, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), and Corona are supplemented by cases on lesser-known and smaller companies from emerging markets, such as Proton Car from Malaysia and San Lu from China. In addition to short, end of chapter cases that can be used in classroom discussion, the book also boasts longer, end of book cases which require integration of multiple chapters and synthesis of knowledge to identify and solve international marketing problems.

In an environment characterized by scarce resources, increased competition, higher customer expectations, and faster rates of change, executives are turning to partnerships to provide sustainable competitive advantage. Partnering provides a way to leverage the unique skills and expertise of each partner and may also lock-out competitors. Partnerships, however, are costly in terms of the time and effort required. A firm cannot and should not partner with every supplier or customer. It is important to ensure that scarce resources are dedicated only to those relationships which will truly benefit from a partnership. Yet, many organizations become involved in relationships that do not meet management expectations and/or which end in failure. How can managers determine, in advance, if a relationship is one which will result in competitive advantage, and is worthy of the time and resources needed to fully develop into a partnership? Further, all partnerships are not the same. How does management know what type of partnership would provide the best pay-off? These questions may be answered by using the partnership model presented in this book. The partnership model provides a structured and repeatable process to effectively and efficiently build and maintain tailored business relationships that may become an asset for executives looking for competitive advantage.
The book also includes The Partnership Model Toolkit, which provides resources to help sell the benefits of the partnership session both within your company and to a potential partner, materials to help participants prepare for the meeting and all of the slides and handouts required to conduct a session.

Prominent policy makers, scientific researchers and practitioners in this field provide various inputs and analyses relating to the development of sustainable innovations. It is expected that policy makers, organizations, individual researchers, students and even communities can further develop and implement concepts and practices by drawing on the variety of projects and theoretical foundations presented in this volume. Topics include environmental supply chain management, regional sustainability strategy, the ‘Triple Helix’ collaboration, and specific technological developments and advances in this area. A reader can thus quickly build a comprehensive and state-of-the-art understanding of the field of sustainable innovation and its future directions.

Edited by Dell P. Champlin and Janet T. Knoedler.
Includes a chapter by College at Brockport former faculty member J. Dennis Chasse: John R. Commons and his students : the view from the end of the twentieth century.
Institutionalist labor economics was the dominant approach to labor in the United States until the 1960s, when mathematical and abstract approaches to economics became more influential. A primary aim of this book is to demonstrate the continuing vibrancy and relevance of the institutionalist approach to labor economics, which is concerned with the issues of income distribution and inequality, the power of vested interests, and economic justice. Early institutionalists include John R. Commons, John Maurice Clark, and Thorstein Veblen.

Edited by Abu N.M. Wahid.
Includes a chapter co-authored by College at Brockport faculty member Baban Hasnat: Housing for the rural poor : the Grameen Bank experience..
In the first comprehensive study of Bangladesh's Grameen Bank Abu Wahid brings together a wide range of specialists to examine this unique and highly successful development experiment. Providing small, dedicated loans to a poor rural population, the Grameen Bank is characterized by a practical, realistic system of debt servicing, credit education, and an unusual method of peer monitoring in lieu of nonexistent collateral. The bank offers marginalized groups the initial credit that the contributors consider essential to economic self-improvement. Throughout the book, the contributors examine the theory, performance, impact, structure, and costs of the Grameen Bank. In addition, they explore the replicability and application of the Grameen concept for other countries, including the United States.
