About the Author

John Mikler is Associate Professor in the Department of Government and International Relations at The University of Sydney.


"Few would deny that global corporations are immensely influential. They dominate markets and have profound influence over technology, prosperity and the environment. John Mikler's brilliant study of how they share political power with government provides a cogent and perceptive analysis. It is a landmark in one of the most crucial yet under-emphasised debates in contemporary social science. Corporations structure our present and define our futures, to understand their power requires Mikler's masterful, wide-ranging and richly illustrated exposition." Stephen Wilks, Emeritus Professor, University of Exeter "This book provides a timely and highly needed addition to the literature on corporations as political actors in today's global political economy. Mikler's strategy to reterritorialize corporations and specifically corporate power in geopolitical terms allows fascinating perspectives on actors typically considered in terms of transnational characteristics." Doris Fuchs, University of Muenster "This readable book is a worthy addition to the literature." Society of Professional Economists "More than a theoretical call to action, this book also offers practical entry points to the study of corporate power-including global corporate agency, questions of state power, national institutional varieties, and corporate-level private authority. Broad, sophisticated, and highly accessible....it will surely be a valuable introduction for students and scholars of international studies that want to work on broadening our understanding of global corporate power."
