Volume 7 of "Advances in Global Leadership" includes timely and impactful chapters on various concepts and processes associated with leading across cultures and other boundaries. In these times of accelerating complexity and global inter-connectedness, a deeper understanding of the multiple contextual, organizational, and individual variables and processes associated effective international leadership is ever more important. This Volume, drawing on authors from many different cultures and contexts, contributes to bridging and integrating conceptual and practitioner perspectives in pursuing this deeper understanding.
The Advances in Global Leadership series successfully blends conceptual, empirical and practitioner perspectives from authors around the globe. Volume 7 continues this blending at a time when insights from multiple perspectives on leading across boundaries are ever more needed. Katherine Xin, Professor of Management, China Europe International Business School, Founding Editor-in Chief, Harvard Business Review China, Shanghai, China As one vitally involved in the development of global leaders, I look forward to the Advances in Global Leadership series. It has consistently been a benchmark of fresh and insightful scholarship that makes sense and provides value to those of us who grapple with the challenge of bringing to bear robust behavioral science to real world issues. Mobley, Wang and Li have again brought together an excellent group of authors to illuminate this timeless and ever more critical subject. Mathew J.

I am very pleased that the editors are continuing to publish works on global mindset related issues, a major research focus for me and my colleagues at Thunderbird. Giving voice to authors from around the globe, particularly from developing economies, is one of the continuing strengths of AGL and is evident again in Volume 7". Mary B.
