Business is intrinsically woven into our societies, affecting in crucial ways how wealth is produced and distributed, the way our societies are governed and how power is exercised. Recognising this fact, the Elgar Politics and Business series is an innovative new arena for original research across the breadth of this dynamic and important area of study. Covering a broad range of topics, the series examines issues such as: the politics of business taxation, business as an ‘active force’ in politics, the political power of corporations, business and regulation, and the politics of global value chains. Drawing key inspiration from political science, the series is interdisciplinary in nature, and will attract submissions from across the social sciences and law. Both international and comparative in its approach, this exciting series encompasses theoretical and empirical work from both well-established researchers and emerging scholars.
