This Handbook presents a comprehensive and contemporary compendium of the field of cross-cultural management (CCM). In recognition of current trends regarding migration, political ethnocentrisms and increasing nationalism, the chapters in this volume not only cover the traditional domains of CCM such as expatriation, global (virtual) teamwork and leadership, but also examine emerging topics such as bi/multi-culturalism, migration, religion and more, all considered from a global perspective. The result is a Handbook that acknowledges and builds on a variety of research traditions (from mainstream to critical), updates existing knowledge in relation to current challenges, and sets the direction for future research and developments, making this an invaluable resource for researchers in the field, and across related areas of international business, management, and intercultural relations. Part 1: Multiple Research Paradigms for the Study of Culture; Part 2: Research Methods in Cross-Cultural Management; Part 3: Cross-Cultural Management and Intersecting Fields of Study; Part 4: Individuals and Teams in Cross-Cultural Management; Part 5: Global mobility and Cross-Cultural Management; Part 6: Developing Intercultural Competence.

Producing scholarly knowledge on cross-cultural management primarily takes place in business schools across the world. The six excellent contributions in this section of the book were crafted in Vienna, Sheffield, Hull, Helsinki, Turku, Stockholm, Istanbul, and Cluj-Napoca. Nevertheless, scholars in different locations produce knowledge in conditions that are remarkably similar. They are under pressure to do particular kinds of research and to target their work in specific journals and not others. When they analyze language, knowledge, talent, ethics, religion and diversity in organizations that operate internationally, they do so from a particular vantage point.
