The Antarctic Politics of Brazil: Where the Tropic meets the Pole by Ignacio Javier Cardone
English | EPUB | 2022 | 271 Pages | ISBN : 3030801608 | 4.8 MB

This book focuses on the connection between Brazil and Antarctica, two regions that can be seen as distant and contrasting, but are physically, culturally and politically associated. Relying on archival material and previous literature, the book offers a thorough account of Brazil’s involvement with one of the most significant regions in the global environment. The author explores the place of Antarctica in geopolitical works and in the first initiatives involving Brazil and the continent, from the rise of geopolitical thought in Brazil in the 1930s up to the present day. He argues that the connection between Brazil and Antarctica is not without its difficulties, but it has been structured in many enduring ways. The book covers causes for the delay and eventual adoption of a now active foreign policy regarding the region, the policy’s early performance in Antarctica, its evolution as a consequence of domestic and international changes, the increasing interest in the environment, and further recent developments.

Crises and Disruptions in International Business: How Multinational Enterprises Respond to Crises by Murad A. Mithani
English | PDF,EPUB | 2022 | 483 Pages | ISBN : 3030803821 | 8.9 MB

Crises and disruptions can lead to important changes in economic, social and institutional environments. This collection of influential JIBS articles and original commentaries highlights that MNEs are affected by, and respond to, crises and disruptions differently than domestic firms due to their geographically dispersed operations and wider range of experiences from being active in diverse environments. MNEs can exhibit greater flexibility to ‘avoid’ locations characterised by crises and disruptions, and when affected, they can deploy a more refined set of responses relative to domestic firms.
