Power and Influence: The Embeddedness of Nations is an important theoretical and empirical work in the fields of strategic management and international relations. It develops embeddedness theory in an international context by examining the external effects of trade, military alliance, diplomatic, and IGO networks on cooperative strategic decision making in the United Nations. Significant contributions are made by developing core concepts in international relations theory that have analogues in management theory. Managers and policy makers face globalization in all of its facets and can discover benefits in a changing world of complex interdependence post-Cold War.
Deborah de Lange is Assistant Professor of Strategy and International Business at Sawyer Business School, Suffolk University.

Editorial Reviews

“De Lange builds on and contributes to the growing body of literature conceptualizing the international state system as a network of embedded actors. Her analysis of United Nations voting patterns demonstrates the potential of moving beyond dyadic similarity to a more comprehensive view of the state system in which each state is connected to its peers through multiple overlapping economic, political and social connections. In recent years, we have finally gone from knowing this is true to having the tools to analyze the state system accordingly. De Lange’s analysis offers an important and early reference point in this progression.”  --Witold Henisz, Associate Professor of Management, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania
