Anmeldelser

«Review from previous edition Nicolai Foss brings critical and integrative insights to organizations and management. Those interested in understanding new developments in strategic management will find this book compelling.»

David Teece, University of California, Berkeley

«With a keen eye, Nicolai Foss scrutinizes the foundations of the knowledge-based theory of the firm, offering an analysis that is at once critical and constructive. This will be an essential book for anyone working at the cross-roads of organizational economics and strategy.»

Richard N. Langlois, University of Connecticutt

«This book is timely. The role of knowledge in the modern economy has been the subject of considerable woolly thinking. Nicolai Foss brings to the area an economist's clarity of thought together with a remarkable breadth of scholarship. The result is a substantial contribution to our understanding of organizational theory, the theory of the firm, and the nature of business strategy.»

Robert Grant, City University, London

«A thought-provoking effort at integrating organizational economics and business strategy, based on an unusually profound knowledge and respect for both research traditions. A precious contribution to the development of an emerging new field of study between economics and management.»

Anna Grandori, Bocconi University
