Style and structure: Written at the appropriate level for 1st year undergraduate students and those studying the subject for the first time. It’s accessibility also appeals to non-native English speakers.

Balance of Theory and Practice: Offers both practical and academic knowledge. Practical pedagogical tools include: case studies, interviews with industry experts, scenarios, end-of-chapter debate sections and employability skills sections. International in scope and content: New and updated case studies from a wide range of regions including those from emerging economies such as Africa, the Middle East and South-East Asia. Length: Written for 1st semester courses, where Bowdin (market leader) is considered to be too long.
