Dear colleagues: I am pleased to present the table of contents for Journal of World Business, Volume 52: 4: Special Issue on Multilatinas and the Internationalization of Latin American Firms. Published scholarship about Latin America (and other regions such as Africa) has been underrepresented in mainstream IB and management journals. In this special issue, editors Ruth V. Aguilera, Luciano Ciravegna, Alvaro Cuervo-Cazurra and Maria Alejandra Gonzalez-Perez have assembled high caliber scholarship that showcases cutting-edge research on IB in Latin America generally and Multinalitinas in particular. These articles span micro- and macro- levels of analysis, draw on a wide range of theoretical paradigms and empirical approaches, and contain insights not just for IB in Latin America but contributions to the IB field more broadly. In addition, and consistent with JWB’s mission, the introductory article (along with the others included in this special issue) contains important insights into the phenomenon of multilatinas and trade and commercial relations between LA and the rest of the world.
