The Routledge Companion to Non-Market Strategy

Thomas C. Lawton and Tazeeb S. Rajwani


"The Routledge Companion to Nonmarket Strategy presents the current state of the art in the field and identifies a rich set of research opportunities for improving our understanding of the nonmarket environment, for developing new insights to improve strategy formulation and selection, and for empirically evaluating the effectiveness of strategies for enhancing a firm’s performance and legitimacy." - David P. Baron, David S. and Ann M. Barlow Professor of Political Economy and Strategy, Emeritus, Stanford University, USA


“The authors of this volume have an exciting project: dragging the strategy discipline beyond the cliches of market competition towards full recognition of regulators, family networks, not-for-profits, pressure groups and state-owned enterprises as crucial actors in the contemporary environment. They advance a view in which markets are much more complex than traditionally seen. - Richard Whittington, Professor of Strategic Management, University of Oxford, UK

It is commonplace for today’s transnational enterprises to undertake political risk analysis when choosing foreign markets and creating entry strategies. Despite this, non-market elements of corporate strategy are less well researched than the traditional market-based perspectives.

Providing comprehensive and leading edge overviews of current scholarship, this Companion surveys the current state of the field and provides a basis for improving our understanding of the non-market environment, encouraging new insights to improve strategies for enhancing a firm’s performance and legitimacy.

With a foreword by David Baron, the international team of contributors includes Jean-Philippe Bonardi, Bennet Zelner, and Jonathan Doh, who combine to create a book that is essential reading for students and researchers in business, management, and politics, including those interested in business regulation, environmental policy, political risk and corporate social responsibility.
