The recent trend toward a multifaceted business environment that is global rather than strictly national in nature makes it increasingly important for advertising and communication professionals to understand the principles and practices of marketing and advertising planning in international markets. Kaynak presents both a comprehensive guide to the social, cultural, technological, political, and economic influences that affect the international advertising business and a practical handbook on specific advertising processes and practices. The author shows that in most cases, advertising systems, practices, and procedures vary from one country to another and that these differences are related to differences in the respective countries' demographic, socio-economic, cultural, and technological development. Kaynak fully examines these different approaches, offering the reader a detailed and practical look at how advertising is done in other countries and why it is done that way. Among the topics Kaynak treats in-depth are the internationalization of advertising agencies, the legal restraints on international advertising, and the relationship between advertising and socio-economic development. Case examples of international, multinational and transnational firms and advertising agencies are used to illustrate the transition from a general international advertising planning approach to specific international advertising policy and strategy development. Separate chapters devoted to comparative advertising systems and cross-cultural/national advertising explore the reasons for similarities and differences in advertising practices and examine in detail particular advertising strategies and tactics. Throughout, Kaynak takes into account the practical concerns of advertising professionals, making this an excellent resource for both current and aspiring advertising managers and executives.

This tribute to Professor Arthur von Mehren from the Harvard Law School is a contribution to the evolving transatlantic dialogue on the conflict of laws. It contains ten contributions that discuss the problems conflict of laws is facing in a globalized world. The first five contributions deal with current legal topics in international civil litigation and transatlantic judicial co-operation ranging from the design of judgments conventions to the recently adopted Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements, and from problems involving negative declaratory actions in international disputes to recent transatlantic developments relating to service of process and collective proceedings. The remaining five contributions focus on choice of law in international relationships. They cover comparative and economic dimensions of party autonomy, reflect on discussions in the choice of law relating to intellectual property rights, and critically discuss the applicable law in antitrust law litigation, international arbitration, and actions for punitive damages.
Since the introduction of economic reforms and an open door policy in 1978, China has been proclaimed as "the emerging powerhouse of the twenty-first century." The Chinese market's attractiveness to international marketers has also received significant boost as a result of the country's admission into the World Trade Organization (WTO). Accordingly, advertisers look at China and perceive tremendous opportunity in 1.3 billion Chinese consumers which represents one-fifth of the world population in what is called the world's largest market. Being viewed as a new frontier for consumer good investment does not mean that advertising in China is simple. On the contrary, many Western business firms which have invested their capital into Chinese businesses have suffered setbacks or even failure. Thus, it is important to understand that despite the dramatic impact of economic reform and the drive for modernization over the past two decades, the Chinese market has many special characteristics that make it a challenging place in which to do business including making advertising in this market . This book examines the key barriers/constraints that foreign firms should be mindful of in order to develop a viable advertising strategy in a changing China in which abundant opportunities await those that can fulfill it.
