About the Book

This volume examines the nature of interfirm networks and their role in promoting industrial competitiveness. Where previous work in this area has tended to be descriptive, the distinguished contributors to this volume present a balanced theoretical and empirical approach to interfirm networking drawing on a variety of international case studies. Issues covered include:

* The role of networks in regulating conflict and producing co-operation

* The role of networks in developing knowledge and competences

* Network governance and conflict intensive networks
