Power and Influence: The Embeddedness of Nationsis an important theoretical and empirical work in the fields of strategic management and international relations. It develops embeddedness theory in an international context by examining the external effects of trade, military alliance, diplomatic, and IGO networks on cooperative strategic decision making in the United Nations. Significant contributions are made by developing core concepts in international relations theory that have analogues in management theory. Managers and policy makers face globalization in all of its facets and can discover benefits in a changing world of complex interdependence post-Cold War.
