Summary Most books on knowledge claim to be on knowledge management and are rather narrowly focused. This book focuses on the complexity of knowledge. It takes into account diverse disciplines such as economics, social sciences, anthropology, international business, and institutional analysis. The authors explore knowledge internationally from a macro to a more micro level, from the state to households, from knowledge production to knowledge consumption, lifting the veil on knowledge complexities. By making the complexities more transparent, the authors enrich readers' understanding and illuminate their perception of knowledge as a key factor in the development of the 21st century world. This approach offers a wider perspective on knowledge in contemporary business, going beyond the usual economics-limited viewpoint and addressing wider challenges and opportunities. The book is derived from many years of research and teaching on the subject by the two main authors and delineates the key features of knowledge and its role in a multiplicity of situations, with examples from Europe, Asia and the USA.
