"In the seventh edition of his successful text, Warren Keegan offers a unique blend of managerial relevance, up-todate examples and theoretical insight. This text is a pleasure to read for students and practitioners alike. Once again, this edition convincingly demonstrates why Warren Keegan's text stands out from the crowd." Professor Bodo B. Schlegelmilch, Editor, Journal of International Marketing Chair of International Marketing and Management, Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration
"Warren Keegan's new edition of Global Marketing Management will be a classic text, for its scope, breadth, and insights. He takes the reader with ease, clarity and high competence from the fundamentals of Global Marketing Management to the frontiers of Global e-marketing. In a digitizing world, where the globalization of marketing will be increasingly instantaneous and irreversible, Keegan's book, I predict, will be essential reading and an indispensable reference." Howard V. Perlmutter, Ph.D, Emeritus Professor of Social Architecture and Management, The Wharton School
"Keegan's Global Marketing Management, Seventh Edition, is an impressive revision of the classic work on global marketing and is without question the world's leading textbook for students and reference for business executives on international and global marketing. Warren Keegan covers everything, from the fundamental concepts; tools and core issues to the contemporary up to the minute 'hot' topics. Keegan is the world's leading 'guru' on Global Marketing and he shares his vast understanding and knowledge in this impressive revision." Hermawan Kartajaya, Governor, Asia Pacific Marketing Federation
"Warren Keegan is to global marketing what Philip Kotler is to marketing. As a student, then as a teacher, Keegan was my hero and there is still no one who comes anywhere near him for depth, excitement, clarity, and vision. This seventh edition is a book that stands head and shoulders above all others. It pushes the state-of-the-art to even new frontiers. For anyone interested in global marketing, whether student, teacher, or practitioner, this book is a must." Professor Malcolm H.B. McDonald, Professor of Marketing Strategy and Deputy Director, Cranfield School of Management

From the Inside Flap
Global Marketing Management, Seventh Edition, traces its ancestry to Multinational Marketing Management, a book that broke new ground in the field of international marketing when it was published in 1974. The first edition departed from the traditional export trade focus in the field of international marketing and adopted a strategic approach that reflected the growing importance of multinational corporations, the latest findings of research, and the most advanced experience of practitioners. The book combined text with classroom tested graduate-level cases and was an immediate worldwide success. The objective of each revision has been to not only reflect current practice but to anticipate the direction of development of the field and maintain the book's authoritative position as the leading MBA graduate-level and reference text for practitioners of international marketing.
This revision continues the path-breaking tradition of this book. Every chapter has been completely revised and updated, and a new chapter on global e.marketing has been added. Also included is the completely updated "Global Income and Population for 2000 and Projections to 2010 and 2020" in the Appendix. There are four new cases, and two of the cases that were retained from the previous edition have been revised and updated.
The seventh edition is the most exciting revision in the book's history. Perhaps most significantly, for the first time in modern history, even large population, low-income countries such as China and India appear to have achieved the ability to maintain sustained development and growth that will, if continued, transform these countries from low- or lower-middle to high-income countries. In the meantime, companies in the high-income countries have begun to recognize that they now face formidable competitive challenges from companies located in countries at every stage of development.
World economic integration has proceeded to advance both in the multilateral framework of the World Trade Organization and in regional economic agreements such as NAFTA (The North American Free Trade Agreement) and the EU (European Union). NAFTA links the United States, Canada, and Mexico in a program of economic integration; the EU links the 15 countries of Western Europe; and the member countries of both of these regional agreements are actively exploring expanding the membership of these agreements to other countries in the region: Central and Eastern Europe for the EU, and Central and South America for NAFTA. The two Koreas continue to meet, and the economic linkages in the Pacific basin continue to expand.
The book is organized into six parts: Part I is an introduction to global marketing. Part II covers the major dimensions of the environment of global marketing: economic; social and cultural; and political, legal, and regulatory. Part III is devoted to analyzing and targeting global market opportunities. Part IV focuses on global marketing strategy, and Part V,"Creating Global Marketing Programs," covers the global marketing mix of product, pricing, place, and promotion decisions, and how e.marketing can be integrated into the marketing mix. Part VI, "Managing the Global Marketing Program," concludes the book with a focus on implementation. It addresses the tasks of leading, organizing, and monitoring the global strategy; the future of global marketing; and careers in global marketing.--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

First of al, other than the front page, the text inside has NO COLOR! It's just plain text and no gloassary of terms! They don't bold key terms and there's no glossary for students to check if they know these key terms (esp. for test since the profs use the test bank).
In addition to the lack of illustrations, I felt that the cases could have come at the end of the chapter instead of these numerous side boxes which make the chapter even longer than it already is. I also felt that the the authors could have been more concise with their writing since were many run on sentences and a few typos. Of couse, no one is perfect, but if I'm gonna spend $300 for this book, I expect the best! This was the required text for my class, but perhaps the authors have improved with the 2014 edition that has the MyMarketingLab. My prof said that newer edition didn't have enough instructor resources so they chose this older edition instead.
