Product Description

Review

'The authors [of this book] argue that global business regulations emerge from various 'epistemic' communities - communities of experts that meet regularly all over the world. They have a shared understanding of regulation in any particular sphere that leads them not merely to advise but to direct as well … In effect, the book suggests that the world is run from a few important cities - in particular New York, Washington, Brussels, Geneva - where these communities are important and congregate. The authors interviewed 500 international leaders in business and government to produce the 700-page book … which contains 13 case studies - ranging from property and contract, financial regulation, corporations and securities to the environment, food, telecommunications, drugs, sea, road and air transport. These are sandwiched between a broad-ranging introduction and analytical conclusion dealing with the core issues of globalisation.' Financial Times

'This is a highly stimulating book, full of valuable information collected from a wide variety of sources.' Gavin McFarlane, New Law Journal

'I find it a work of outstanding scholarship with an engaging tone, peppered with amusing turns of phrase and observations.' Peter Standish, Swinburne University of Technology

Book Description

This book assesses business regulation in the context of globalisation and policy-making through a number of case studies ranging from manufacturing to intellectual property. The study comprises material from 500 key players and policy-makers in business, government, trade forums, NGOs and lobby groups, as well as extensive archival research.

HASH(0x9780772c) out of 5 stars Global Business Regulation 24 April 2001
By Emma Rudkin - Published on Amazon.com
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.
