Business and politics: a comparative introduction
Globalization, violent protests against international organizations such as the World Trade Organization, and the surge in international trade have affected the way businesses now interact with governments. The new edition of Graham Wilson s popular book on business-government relations in advanced industrialized societies has been completely revised to reflect the enormous changes that have taken place over the past decade. Wilson s helpful comparative perspective focuses on individual countries -- U.S.A., Britain, Germany, Scandinavia, Italy, France, and Japan -- to clearly illustrate different models of business-government relations. His in-depth exploration includes how government-business relations have been challenged by globalization and evaluation of its consequences for different countries.
