    Abstract

    'This is an excellent compendium of the ongoing research into global retailing across a range of disciplines within the social sciences. . . the collection deserves a place on the bookshelf of academics who research and teach this interesting and rapidly emerging research field.' – Steve Wood, Business History ‘Coe and Wrigley have assembled a most impressive collection of key writings on the globalization of retailing. It will be of great value to students, researchers and policymakers in this rapidly growing, and extremely important field.’ – Peter Dicken, University of Manchester, UK and author of Global Shift This path-breaking collection, edited by two leading scholars in the field, brings together seminal contributions from the burgeoning multidisciplinary literature on the globalization of retailing. In addition to focusing on the retail corporations and their expansionary strategies, it explores the multi-faceted impacts of retail globalization on host economies and profiles the store and sourcing dimensions of transnational retail activity.
