    Much of the existing literature on multinational companies has been concerned with firms originating in the world's largest economies. This book redresses the situation by presenting important information on the internationalization of a small country's industry. Multinational Restructuring, Internationalization and Small Economies goes beyond traditional studies of foreign direct investment. By using detailed data covering practically all Swedish multinationals and more than two decades of expansion in international markets, the authors describe, interpret and analyse issues which are normally difficult to investigate.
