Inter-firm relations are not new. But fast developments in technology and globalization have led to increased opportunities for international alliances, and an upsurge in the interest in inter-organizational relations. With the time ripe for a unified theory of collaboration,Inter-firm Collaboration, Learning and Networkssurveys the current field, connects differing perspectives and answers questions about who should collaborate, why, and how.

Emphasizing learning and innovation, this book offers an integrated account of the key issues in the design and management of inter-firm relations and networks. It takes a uniquely interdisciplinary approach, bringing together perspectives from economics, sociology and management to offer a new kind of book on this subject. Supporting theory, the book includes illustrative case examples taken from a variety of firm, network and industry types.

Coherent and wide-reaching,Inter-firm Collaboration, Learning and Networksprovides students and academics in economics, business, sociology, social psychology and economic geography with the tools required to understand this topical and highly relevant subject.
Bart Nooteboomis Professor of Organization in the Rotterdam School of Management at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
