The fashion industry is becoming more and more global, with many companies sourcing and manufacturing their goods overseas. Retailing is no different. As more US retailers begin to expand beyond the home borders, students must have a keen understanding of both foreign and domestic retailing environments in order to remain competitive. International Retailing, 2nd Edition, will lay the groundwork for understanding the retail environment in key countries around the world, including Korea, India, China, and members of the European Union. It will concentrate on how legal, social, and economic measures have affected the distribution of consumer goods throughout the world and provide a conceptual framework for understanding future trends.
