0 Reviews
This book is about a case study of Firestone Natural Rubber Company in Liberia. In this book issues of bureaucratic corruption, ethics and social alienation are directly confronted from a case study approach. Positivist and post-positivist approaches in the framework of a mixed methodology are adopted. This approach is justified in an attempt to generate comprehensive understanding of the research problem and its likely solutions.
