The decision to source software development to an overseas firm
(offshoring) is looked at frequently in simple economic terms - it's
cheaper, and skilled labor is easier to find. In practice, however,
offshoring is fraught with difficulties. As well as the considerable
challenge of controlling projects at a distance, there are differences
in culture, language, business methods, politics, and many other issues
to contend with. Nevertheless, as many firms have discovered, the
benefits of getting it right are too great to ignore. This book explains
everything you need to know to put offshoring into practice, avoid the
pitfalls, and develop effective working relationships. It covers a
comprehensive range of the important offshoring issues: from ROI to
strategy, from SLA to culture, from country comparisons to provider
marketing. Written for CTOs, CIOs, consultants, and other IT executives,
this book is also an excellent introduction to sourcing for business
students.

This book tries to be an IT book and an anthropology book... and fails miserably at both. Universities would be well advised to stay away from this, even if it means making the students get an IT book and a book on dealing with comparative culture.
