The editors have assembled an international team of expert scholars to describe and analyse the role of organized business in creating, and responding to, the regionalization and internationalization of markets and politics. The contributors focus on theoretical issues, discrete regions and states drawn from the major trading regimes around the globe, and together address the following important issues: - To what extent does organized business accentuate the deepening and widening of regional and global trading regimes? - Does the development of these multi-level governance regimes in turn pull organized business into more comprehensive levels of organization and public policy coordination? The collection concludes that globalization and the 'new regionalism' cannot be understood without recognizing the key role of business organizations. No other volume has yet detailed the critical relationship between organized business and globalization/new regionalism.
