New insights and a provocative perspective characterized this book by Professors Welch, Benito, and Petersen. . . Managers will find the framework of this book very appealing and relevant to their everyday international efforts and inquiries. The book is mandatory reading for academics and graduates in business, international marketing, and international business. Carlos M. Rodriguez, International Marketing Review Numerous books and articles on entry strategies and entry modes explain why companies choose a certain mode and how companies should enter foreign markets. This book, however, deals with the strategic decision making process when deciding which mode to use on entering a new market. The approach in this book is novel in that it discusses and suggests how companies can use a mixed mode approach to achieve success in foreign markets. Moreover, it deals with issues such as how and when to move from one mode to another, which has always been an important question for firms as well as for scholars. To summarize, this is a timely publication which, based on solid theoretical grounding, provides excellent guidelines for managers formulating strategies to enter new markets, as well as expanding their operations in foreign markets. Pervez N. Ghauri, Manchester Business School, University of Manchester, UK Also known as entry modes or foreign market servicing methods , foreign operation methods are critical criteria for companies ability to function in the international business arena. This comprehensive and accessible textbook explores the characteristics, choice, utilization and management of foreign operation methods. The book provides an extended analysis of the various foreign operation mode options, including those that have, until now, received relatively cursory treatment. Issues such as international licensing, franchising, outsourcing, project operations and management contracts are also discussed. In addition to providing an overview of the various theoretical perspectives on foreign operation mode choice, a treatment of emerging strategy concerns such as mode combinations and mode switching is included. Featuring a thorough overview of the various theoretical perspectives on foreign operation mode choice and use, and treatment of emerging strategy concerns such as mode combinations and mode switching, this textbook provides a somewhat broader coverage of foreign operation methods than current literature has offered until now. It will prove invaluable for a wide-ranging readership encompassing undergraduate and postgraduate students, academics and practitioners in the field of international business.

Thoroughly updated since the publication of the first edition, with new chapters on die design for operators, solids conveying and melting and twin-screw extruders, this book bridges the gap between theoretical studies and the practical experience of the processor in the extrusion of thermoplastic polymers and rubbers. Theoretical discussions generally give little attention to practical considerations, such as the conflict between productivity and product quality. Here however the authors give a clear representation of the physical mechanisms on which so much of the polymer processing industry depends, followed by guidance on operational strategies and the likely effects in terms of output, quality, uniformity and stability. Practical information is given on start-up trials, scale-up, product changing, dismantling and cleaning. Supported by over 40 tables and 176 figures, Extruder Principles and Operation will provide commercial processors with a logical background based on theory and experience, which will help them to obtain the best performance from their equipment, to recognize its limitations and to face new problems with confidence.

"Operation Solomon" was one of the most remarkable rescue efforts in modern history, in which more than 14,000 Ethiopian Jews were airlifted to Israel in little more than a day. In this riveting volume, Stephen Spector offers the definitive account of this incredible story, based on over 200 interviews and exclusive access to confidential documents. Written with the pace and immediacy of a novel, here is the dramatic story of the rescue of the dark-skinned Jews of Ethiopia. Spector recounts how 20,000 Jews were willingly lured from their ancestral villages to Addis Ababa, expecting to be taken quickly from there to the Holy Land. Instead, they became pawns in a struggle between the Israeli government and Ethiopia's repressive dictator, who tried to coerce Israel into selling him weapons he needed in a losing war against rebel armies. In the resulting stalemate, the Jewish community was forced to live for nearly a year in squalid hovels, vulnerable to the dangers of the city, including crime and HIV. Worse yet, the imminent collapse of Addis Ababa, with the rebels closing in on the capital, raised the threat of bloody street fighting or even a genocidal attack on the Jews, a small minority in a nation that is primarily Christian and Muslim. Spector describes the tense negotiations among Israelis, Ethiopians, and Americans, which became increasingly urgent as time ran low and the danger mounted. And he highlights the secret deals and sudden setbacks that nearly aborted the mission at the eleventh hour, even as Israeli jets sat on the runway in Ethiopia, waiting to take the Jews to the land for which they had yearned for generations. Recounting the full story for the first time, Operation Solomon is a stirring account of a heroic rescue achieved in the face of daunting odds.

Mineral Processing Design and Operations is expected to be of use to the design engineers engaged in the design and operation of mineral processing plants and including those process engineers who are engaged in flow-sheets development. Provides an orthodox statistical approach that helps in the understanding of the designing of unit processes. The subject of mineral processing has been treated on the basis of unit processes that are subsequently developed and integrated to form a complete strategy for mineral beneficiation. Unit processes of crushing, grinding, solid–liquid separation, flotation are therefore described in some detail so that a student at graduate level and operators at plants will find this book useful. Mineral Processing Design and Operations describes the strategy of mathematical modeling as a tool for more effective controlling of operations, looking at both steady state and dynamic state models. * Containing 18 chapters that have several worked out examples to clarify process operations * Filling a gap in the market by providing up-to-date research on mineral processing * Describes alternative approaches to design calculation, using example calculations and problem exercises
