“Global companies represent challenges of governance which need to be studied comprehensively and systematically. This handbook tackles this challenge successfully and represents both the scholarly progress and the maturity of this field of study. It is a must in any social sciences library and will be highly useful for scholars, graduate students and undergraduates alike.” David Levi-Faur, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
“This is an excellent volume examining the role multinational corporations play in global public policy processes. The contributors recognize that motivations and strategies of these firms cannot be reduced to profit maximization. To understand how corporations influence policy, one must explore the complex nature of the modern global firm. The Handbook of Global Companies will enlighten the on-going debates on globalization and public policy.” Aseem Prakash, University of Washington
“For all their impact on the global policy environment, multinational companies remain relatively understudied outside the management and international business framework. This Handbook, deftly edited by John Mikler, identifies how global companies are political and social, as well as economic, actors that drive globalization, and in turn are shaped by it. The chapters, written by both distinguished and rising scholars, provide a welcome breadth of coverage, ranging from theoretical and political issues of power to social issues of sustainability and the role of corporations in safeguarding (or destroying) the planet. This impressive handbook is destined to become a standard reference for anyone interested in global companies as policy actors.” Linda Weiss, Professor Emeritus, University of Sydney
