'This is a thoroughly updated version of the authors’ successful and important guide book for international managers and students. Starting from an inspiring discussion of fundamental international management questions (including globalization, the global mindset, and complexity) the book moves on to an in-depth analysis of key aspects of international management behaviour. Practicable frameworks, striking case studies, and guidance on ‘mindfulness’ will help readers apply these insights to the multiple situations of interacting with international colleagues, customers and suppliers.'
Angelika Zimermann - University of Loughborough
'No wonder this book is now in its eight edition! Prolific researchers and educators of the highest calibre, Lane and Maznevski navigate the sea of ever-expanding international and cross-cultural management research with steady hands. The veteran authors have given us a book that offers a refreshing combination of strong theoretical foundations, specific real-life examples, and generalizable practical applications for those working in a turbulent global environment. The book covers a diverse set of contemporary topics ranging from individual skills and leadership competencies to responsibly executing sustainable business strategies for optimal company performance and contains a carefully curated set of cases that illustrate and extend the key points advanced by the chapters. It is accessible in terms of writing style but it also challenges its readers to be mindful of the complexity of global management in twenty-first century. This book is not only ‘useful', it is downright enjoyable!'

'The sixth edition and seventh edition have served me well in teaching classes of advanced undergraduates and MBA students in the US and Taiwan. I greatly appreciate the inclusion of carefully chosen cases within the eighth edition, and also the new option of interactive multimedia business cases. I look forward to using this exciting new edition.'

'International Management Behavior, now in its eighth edition, has been a staple of educators teaching international business and international management courses since the first edition. I remember when I first discovered it many years ago - at the time it was virtually the only textbook available that addressed international management and I eagerly adopted it for my courses. Since that time, this has become a seminal textbook in the field - a classic - because it has stood the test of time. With every revision, the authors have kept it up to date based on new, empirical research that they have folded into the book's pedagogical framework. This textbook should be on the bookshelf of anyone who teaches international business or international management.'
Mark Mendenhall - Chair of Excellence in Business Leadership Management, University of Tennessee
'The eighth edition of International Management Behavior by Lane and Maznevski is a very welcome addition to the international management literature. This is a much-revised edition of this text and the subtitle Global and Sustainable Leadership is apt. It is this concept that is at the core of this volume, and which sets it apart. No other resource deals with the topic of global leadership in as comprehensive a manner. In addition, the return of excellent teaching cases to this edition, combined with its practical focus, make it an extremely useful tool in the classroom.'
David C. Thomas - Simon Fraser University, Canada
'The eighth edition of International Management Behavior continues to be the leading book in the practical application of international management concepts all in the service of developing mindful, agile, and socially responsible global leaders. The book, through its deft critiques of company strategies interwoven with crystal clear summaries of contemporary management and leadership theory, makes the much-talked-about concept of 'global mindset' completely accessible to students and practicing managers in all organizations. I’ve used International Management in advanced undergraduate, graduate/post graduate courses, with consistently the same results: lively, thoughtful, and reflective discussion that challenges and changes individual behavior.'
