Reviews
"[A] solid contribution...this book can provide both valuable reading and reference materials for a broad audience of researchers and practitioners concerned with the more effective management of diversified firms."--Academy of Management Review

"Hoskisson and Hitt draw from their scholarly experiences to give us this worthwhile book about "downscoping"....Enhanced by examples such as GE, Ford, and GM, by chapter summaries, and by strategic management terminology, this well-written book is highly recommended for academicians and practicing managers."--Booklist

"Yet another "D-word" has joined the ranks of corporate America's toolkit for regaining world class competitiveness. Downscoping is a major treatise on the management of diversification that is brilliant. Filled with stories of success and failure, and rigorously researched, Hoskisson and Hitt have a real winner here."--Dr. Mary Ann Von Glinow, Florida International University

"Hoskisson and Hitt present a wealth of scholarship and engaging examples on contemporary management of the diversified firm. Executives and academics who are concerned about the coherence and global competences of corporations will read and benefit greatly from Downscoping."--Donald C. Hambrick, Columbia University
