This intriguing and well-documented book sets up a question: is there a transnational network of urban environmental management emerging, and can this fact be represented by the new buildings designed for transnational corporations? A clear answer would be arguable, because although some well-known buildings have been designed with environmental concern, modernity based on artificial climate plus high energy consume would argue in contrary. In our transitional period of history new definitions are crucial to the future we intend to build. Thus the debate this well written book engenders on ethics and policies of transnational corporations in the context of Third World development makes it worthwhile reading.Was this review helpful?
