About the eBook

In his perceptive and easily readable autobiography, John Dunning walks the reader through the four seasons of his professional and private life. With just the right touch of humour, he recounts his boyhood experience during the eventful days of the Second World War, his three-year spell in the Royal Navy, as well as his years as a student and research assistant at University College London. He then goes on to describe his times as teacher and researcher at Southampton, Reading and Rutgers Universities, and the origin and evolution of the Reading School of International Business scholarship.

Along the way, the author shares some of his many and varied consultancy assignments and travelling experiences, offering some insights into his personal values and home life in Henley-on-Thames and Cornwall.

This remarkable book gives a unique personal insight into the life and work of one of the most influential figures in the study of international business. It will no doubt prove a fascinating read to all those with an interest in the field and its development - and especially to those who have benefited from the work of one of its great thinkers and scholars.
