|a"This book examines the issue of mergers and acquisitions (M&As) in the context of technological development, and in particular the impact of M&As on the innovation process. Drawing on perspectives from both management and economics, the book offers a cohesive blend of theory, methodology, and a wealth of empirical material." "The synthesis of managerial and economic analysis of the effects of M&As on innovation will be of great interest to academics and students in management and economics, as well as high-level managers and policymakers."--BOOK JACKET.
