Originally published in 2005, this book offers an outlook on relations between national governments and multinational companies that provides broad coverage of the key issues likely to determine that relationship during the twenty-first century. From the perspective of the company decision maker concerned with national regulation and incentive policies, to the host government policymaker in an emerging market, to the home government policymaker in a Triad country, each dimension is considered and analysed in light of the others. As well, additional stakeholders such as labour groups, shareholders, non-governmental organisations, local governments, and regional organisations are discussed and their impacts on the relationship are evaluated.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: 'With a virtual who's-who from the field of international business-government relations, this volume analyzes complementary and antagonistic interactions between firms and governments. Rich in new detail, but grounded in a thorough historical appreciation of the literature, this work will appeal to academics and practitioners in developed and developing countries alike.' Theodore H. Moran, Marcus Wallenberg Professor of International Business and Finance, Georgetown University
Review of the hardback: 'Robert Grosse, who is one of the leading authorities on relations between multinational enterprises and governments, has done a great service to the academic and managerial communities by bringing together the perspectives of some of the finest researchers on this extremely important topic ...This book is required reading for researchers and managers interested in gaining a nuanced appreciation of multinational-government relations, while academics and doctoral students will come to rely on it as a handy reference book.' Sushil Vachani, Associate Professor of Strategy Policy and Faculty Director, DBA Program, Boston University
Review of the hardback: 'This book defines the terms of reference for exploring the relationship between international companies and governments in the early 21st century. It revisits the idea that the relationship really involves more actors than just national governments and multinational companies - local governments, employees, pressure groups, and others are highly relevant stakeholders whose perspectives need to be considered in setting strategy and policy.' Karl P. Sauvant, Director, Division on Investment, Technology and Enterprise Development, UNCTAD
