Edward Elgar Publishing, in conjunction with the Institute for the Study of Business Markets (ISBM) at the Penn State Smeal College of Business, has published a new book edited by two Smeal professors that explores business-to-business marketing in 38 chapters written by the world's leading scholars in the field.

Handbook of Business-to-Business Marketing, edited by Gary Lilien and Rajdeep Grewal, provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art review of business-to-business marketing. The book provides a broad overview of the field while pioneering new ideas relating to building mutually valuable relationships between organizations—from businesses to government agencies to nonprofits—and the many individuals within them.

The Handbook includes theoretical and practical perspectives in business-to-business marketing, marketing mix and strategy, inter-firm relationships, personal selling and sales management, technology marketing, and methodological issues central to business-to-business markets.

It is written primarily for academics and graduate students who want a complete overview of the academic state of the business-to-business marketing domain. In addition, it will also be of interest to forward-thinking practitioners who want to stay abreast of the current state of knowledge in business-to-business marketing.

The ISBM, co-publisher of the Handbook, is the world's leading institution exclusively devoted to business-to-business marketing. Founded in 1983, the ISBM is supported by over 70 major business-to-business firms and is networked with hundreds of academics worldwide.

Handbook of Business-to-Business Marketing is available online at www.e-elgar.com/bookentry_main.lasso?currency=US&id=13964.
