This volume investigates the specific role of transnational corporations in the process of globalisation and economic development. While it draws on a long history of academic research, it also shows new ways forward. It makes headway both in conceptual as well as empirical terms. Topics covered include locational clustering, research and development partnering, productivity spillovers, privatisation, disinvestment, terrorism, and the role of and impact on transnational corporations. A future research agenda is also put forward.
