This book draws together literature from the fields of strategy, management and innovation to examine the importance of a firm's national base at a sectoral level in an era of globalization. By considering two very dynamic high-technology industries - semiconductors and liquid crystal displays, the author shows how national systems of innovation are of great importance in determining competitive success.
