'The book is an important contribution to the literature on corporate governance. It is of relevance to company lawyers and environmental lawyers and would certainly interest anyone concerned with global issues ... The book is eloquent and passionate and therefore extremely readable. At times its message is disturbing, but Dine intends it to be so. It urges the reader to consider ways of challenging corporate decisions more effectively.' The Modern Law Review
This book explores the legal issues concerning groups of companies including regulation at national, international and global level. It offers a comparative discussion of the way in which issues common to the regulation of groups have been approached in the UK, in the European Union, in other member states of the union, in the US and, where helpful, in other countries including the emergent economies of eastern European states. The author highlights the often tragic consequences of globalisation by transnationals including polarisation of income and environmental damage.
