This book explores and assesses the importance of the relationship between regional protest movements and the territorial organization of business interests.

Drawing on comparative research into business interest associations in nine countries in Europe and North America, the authors show that regional differentiation is an important feature of systems of business associations in all countries. This book includes case studies of countries where such movements are an important phenomenon - Spain, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Canada and the UK. It also includes contrasting studies from West Germany and the USA, where regional movements have not been a prominent feature of national political life.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The book is well presented and contains a useful index.... the book deserves to become a key reference in its field.' - West European Politics

'It is an important contribution from the Organization of Business Interests Project and does credit to its editors.' - Canadian Journal of Political Science

'This is a useful addition to the literature on both local corporatism and sub-national politics.' - Political Studies

'It is a unique study....There have been few studies of business organizations in general, and very few that are internationally comparative. Its uniqueness will make it of interest for that reason alone.' - Local Government Studies

'With this sequence of publications, we may be beginning to approach something which is unfortunately rare in the social sciences: a research tradition which is cumulative in its ability to build upon previous work, and critical in its ability to discern enduring insights from ephemeral enthusiasms.' - Organization Studies
