From the Publisher

"This book makes a significant contribution to the fields of environmental politics and sociology. It recognizes corporations as important actors in civil society. No works have been published on either the specific environmental practices of corporations in developing countries or the manner in which ideologies emerged. The book is highly original and will be an important one." Ronnie D.

Lipschutz, Department of Politics, University of California, Santa Cruz
