Mergers and acquisitions play a major role in shaping business activities worldwide and, consequently, is a widely researched area within the field of business and management. It is also a multi-disciplinary area, with very few topics cutting across so many different functional areas of business or generating interest across such a wide range of groups as this one. This three-volume major work critically examines the research on the ′soft side′ of mergers and acquisitions, that is strategy and organizational issues. The three volumes cover the following topics:
Volume One: Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A): Merger Trends; Corporate Strategy and M&A Merger Types; Theoretical Explanations for M&A.
Volume Two: The M&A Process: Acquisition Analysis; Negotiation Process; Decision Making Processes; Stakeholder Effects of M&A.
Volume Three: Post-Merger Integration: Corporate Governance; Integration Capabilities; Value Creation.
