Editorial Reviews

Review

"...the manuscript is very digestible, presenting an easy to read and engrossing story, and a reader who starts is likely to finish the book in its entirety." Law Society Journal

Book Description

This book confronts the question of how the regulation of business has shifted from national to global institutions. Based on interviews with 500 international leaders in business and government, this book examines the role played by global institutions such as the WTO, IMF and the World Bank, as well as various NGOs and significant individuals. The authors argue that effective and decent global regulation depends on the determination of individuals to engage with powerful agendas and decision-making bodies that would otherwise be dominated by concentrated economic interests.

Format: Paperback
This book adds to the already overflowing subject of globalisation, but giving a distinctly unique edge by looking at it with regards to regulatory issues.
The style is largely academic and the book works better as a "tool-kit" rather than a text that would be read from cover to cover. This is acknowledged by the authors who recommend which parts are most pertinent, given the areas that the reader is most interested in. The structure of the book aids this approach as it is hevaily broken down into sections: an introduction, a look at relevant cases and analysis of those cases.
The cases are most interesting, with a wide variety of subject areas covered from drugs to transportation. Each subject has been researched deeply by the authors who carried out many interviews with important actors in the world of global business regulation before writing the book, and they give interesting and thought provoking accounts.
Overall, the book is probably the best in its field but the size can be a little daunting and the amount of material which the authors cover. Unless the reader has a specific interest in this field and can just use this book as a refernce, it can seem a little laboured and boring.
