Reviews

'Robert Falkner's excellent book addresses a vitally important topic on which the literature is relatively under-developed. His approach is radically different and directly engages existing explanations of the role of business in

global environmental politics. This will certainly mean its appearance on reading lists!' - John Vogler, Professor of International relations, Keele University, UK

'Falkner's contribution is to demonstrate how accounts of the considerable power and influence of business can remain strongly sensitive to the varied nature of business interests and the particularity of the political circumstances with which they are inevitably enmeshed.' - Dan Greenwood, International Affairs
