Dear all


Shortly before he died, Alan Rugman had oversight of a special issue in Multinational Business Review on MNE theory, which was organised and edited by Mark Casson. 


With the kind agreement of the contributors, several of whom are (or were) Reading-based pioneers of International Business research, we have dedicated the collection to Alan’s memory. 


You can access the papers free of charge for the next month through this link, and would encourage you to share and repost this email to any other relevant lists.
