Summary

Retailing provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the contemporary issues in retailing. Designed specifically for advanced undergraduates and postgraduate students of retailing, the text moves from an overview and the context of retailing to more detailed coverage of the key aspects of retail management. It also covers the more recent developments, such as internet shopping and the impact of globalisation.
