Two useful contributions to a disputed subject. A framework of policy motives and mechanisms and different types of technological exports, plus four interesting case studies, make up the volume by Professor Nau and his teams of graduate students. Behrman and Wallender use Ford, ITT, Pfizer and Motorola to describe in detail how affiliates of large enterprises get technological help not easily obtainable by others.
