You find Chapter 1 of the 2nd Edition of The Quest for Global Dominance over on our excerpts blog. Even if you've read the first edition, you may want to consider updating your thinking on the global economy with this new offering which includes three new chapters: Lessons from the Globalization of Wal-Mart; Globalizing the Young Venture; and Leveraging China and India for Global Dominance. Jeffrey E. Garten, former dean of the Yale School of Management (among many other things) writes in the forward that:
The Quest for Global Dominance remains the best by far in its arena--The most comprehensive, the most insightful, the most readable, and simply the most important in the growing genre of what companies need to know as they expand their international horizons.

You may recognize co-author Vijay Govindarajan as the co-author of Ten Rules for Strategic Innovators: From Idea to Execution, which regularly shows up on our bestseller lists.
