The article introduces the March 2001 issue of the Journal of World Business. According to the author, this special issue presents five articles which provide insights on various aspects of the merger and acquisition (M&A) process. The article by Victoria Emerson is an interview with Carlos Ghosn, the Renault executive who in July 1999 became president and COO of Nissan Motors, a company with huge strategic and financial problems. Another article presents the results of a study that examined all phases of the M&A process. The authors, with the help of Arthur Andersen, France, studied 26 middle market companies. An article presents a case study of two acquisitions by a Finnish company. The first was of a Norwegian company and the second a Scottish company. The study is quite interesting in that it focuses on the acquisition experiences and interpretations of the acquired companies' members. The study is retrospective in that informants were asked through interviews to reflect on and talk about the postacquisition process.
