Praise for the Print Edition:

Advertising and Marketing Review by Glen Emerson Morris

"A Basic Guide to Exporting is a good place to begin for anyone who's never had a course in international marketing.  It's just one of a hundred-book-length publications featured in the International Trade Library section of the GLOBUS & NTDB Website.  The book's sixteen chapters provide a comprehensive study of international marketing, and how to look at exporting as a "process."
