Summary

The third edition of this popular text has been completely revised to reflect the enormous changes in business-government relations that have taken place in advanced industrialized societies in recent years. Globalization, violent protests against international organizations such as the World Trade Organization, and the surge in international trade have affected the way business interacts with government in the twenty-first century. As in previous editions, Graham K. Wilson focuses on individual countries to illustrate different models of business-government relations--including the U.S., Britain, Germany, Scandinavia, Italy, France, and Japan. New to this edition are Wilson's exploration of how government-business relations have been challenged by globalization and his evaluation of its consequences for different countries.
