The Dunning Library, situated on the Greenlands campus of the Henley Business School and which contains the books and papers of the late John H. Dunning, has been expanded to include the collection of Professor Alan Rugman.

Alan Rugman was Head of International Business & Strategy at the Henley Business School at the University of Reading, and a founding fellow of the John Dunning Centre for International Business. He was an early proponent of Internalisation Theory, which along with the Eclectic Paradigm, are the basis of what is popularly known in the academic literature as ‘The Reading School’. This line of research was highly influenced by a one-year sabbatical at Reading University’s Department of Economics in the 1970s, where he worked closely with other Reading-based pioneers in this field, including Mark Casson, Peter Buckley and John Dunning.  Professor Rugman published over 300 articles dealing with the economic, managerial, and strategic aspects of multinational enterprises and with trade and investment policy.  He was one of the ten most cited scholars in the field of International Business worldwide.  

The addition of Professor Rugman’s collection to the Dunning Library is intended to be part of the ongoing task of upgrading this collection of seminal academic books and papers and keeping it relevant to the academic community. It is – more than ever- a valuable resource for the wider global community of scholars and academics in this field.
