The Political Causality of Difference
Through analyzing recent change within six industries this book develops a resolutely interdisciplinary approach to studying globalization. By combining questions and methodologies from institutionalist economics and political science, it proposes a generalizable model for studying the politics of industry. It then tests a causal hypothesis.
