Booknews
Using detailed interviews with executives of transnational corporations doing business in India in the late 1980s, illustrates how such companies build contacts and relationships with the various levels of government in order to legitimize their investments and operations in a country and to obtain favorable decisions. Examines the strategies of the corporations, how the two parties interact and on what issues and at what levels, and the actual mechanics by which local agents cement firm relationships. The theoretical framework combines the network approach and institutionalist theory to emphasize the cooperative nature of the relationships. Annotation c.
