"It will henceforth be difficult to theorize globalization without this rich storehouse of information about the global corporations and their role in the current world system." Fredric Jameson, Duke University "This is a pioneering and innovative study of an aspect of globalization that is rarely treated in any systematic way. Through a judicious mix of conceptual argument and empirical analysis, Leslie Sklair's stimulating and highly readable book lays bare the anatomy of the increasingly significant transnational capitalist class. Highly recommended." Peter Dicken, University of Manchester "This book provides a stocktaking of the drivers of globalization worldwide, emphasizing the coherence of the process but also its contradictions, particularly those associated with economic inequality and environmental stress." Journal of Australian Political Economy "The entire process of globalization is fraught with conflicts and new alliances between groups, be they based in corporations, government or social movements. In the end, Sklair does a superb job of depicting which group is dominant in this process and how it vigorously defends its interests from attacks against the culture-ideology of consumerism." International Sociology "In making his case, Sklair takes a strong position to critique TNC and he pulls no punches. For this reason, he has given us a very important standpoint, along with abundant evidence to sustain his position. But whatever one's position, this book will have a major place in the academic debates." Lauren Langman, Loyola University of Chicago, Theory and Society 31, 2002


While most of the popular and academic debates explore ideas of globalization, The Transnational Capitalist Class goes one step further and provides theoretically informed empirical research to explain and deconstruct the process of globalization as seen by the corporations themselves.Using personal interviews with executives and managers from over eighty Fortune Global 500 corporations, as well as already published sources, Sklair demonstrates how globalization works from the perspective of those who control and oppose the major globalizing corporations and their allies in government and the media.The book explores two major crises of globalization - class polarization and ecological sustainability - and shows how the transnational capitalist class attempts to resolve these crises and evaluates its own success and failure. Sklair's unique approach brings a fresh perspective to what has become a key debate of our time.

Format: Taschenbuch
This is both a theoretical and empirical masterpiece that formulates the transformation of the dominate form of capitalism (capitalist) from nationally based to transnationally (globally based). Tons of primary source research behind this. The 'Global Capitalism School' really developed out of this work; see William I. Robinson's A Theory of Global Capitalism: Production, Class, and State in a Transnational World (Themes in Global Social Change) and Jerry Harris' The Dialectics of Globalization: Economic and Political Conflict in a Transnational World. Reading all three of these works together is insightful for understanding how connected social, economic and political change are occurring now worldwide.

I chose this rating because I am impressed by the capable way in which Leslie Sklair has dealt with the great amount of data he has brought together with the perspective of my choice.
