My Contributions to Internalization Theory

Alan Rugman


This paper is an autobiographical reflection on the early history of internalization theory, first developed by Buckley and Casson (1976). The author, Alan Rugman, was a colleague of theirs at Reading University, and he subsequently published a large number of articles in refereed academic journals both extending and testing internalization theory. This article places a set of 25 of the most influential articles by Rugman on internalization theory into the intellectual, institutional and personal context within which they were conceived, presented and published.
