In recent decades, there have been significant changes in the way corporate innovation activities are performed. They include changes in the innovation process, flexibility to outsource certain innovation activities, and by far, the most important one, wider choice in the location of innovation. What caught the most attention of is the trend towards globalization of research and development (R&D) and thereby performance of innovation activities away from the home countries.

The main concerns relate to the two new trends: First, the multinational corporations (MNCs) locating strategic innovation activities in some countries outside the industrialized world, which can be referred to as emerging economies "; and Second, since 2000, some companies from the emerging economies have started entering the global markets with innovative products and services, developed through their own R&D. Both these new developments have managerial implications for companies and policy implications for the host countries (where such R&D is performed), as well as for the home countries of the companies. Further, innovative products and services resulting from R&D activities in emerging economies seem to better address the needs of consumers at the bottom-of-the-pyramid in other developing countries. This book explores and analyzes these issues.

This research presented in Global Innovation in Emerging Economiesis applicable to both the industrialized and developing worlds, although from different perspectives " the former would like to prevent relocation of R&D from their countries, and the latter want more of R&D-related investments.

display_description To reclaim his integrity, a corporate lawyer takes on an unwinnable case After years at the top of his game, Wyatt Matthews has hit rock bottom. Though his bank account is bursting and his law practice is thriving, Wyatt takes no joy in his work. Seeking meaning, he volunteers for six months as a public defender, where he finds that the legal system is an ugly place for those who can't afford top-notch help. In one of his first cases, he arranges bail for a would-be gangster arrested for armed robbery. At first, Marvin White is just another file. But soon, his case will become a crusade. Not long after his release, Marvin is charged with murder. Seven women have been abducted, raped, and murdered by the "Alley Slasher," and Marvin is found near the scene of the latest atrocity. Though Wyatt got in this business to better his own life, he will stop at nothing to save Marvin's.
