| Book Description: |
Refinery explosions. Accounting scandals. Bank meltdowns. All of these catastrophes--and many more--might rightfully be blamed on corporations. In response, advocates have suggested reforms ranging from increased government regulation to corporate codes of conduct to stop corporate abuses. Joshua Barkan writes that these reactions, which view law as a limit on corporations, misunderstand the role of law in fostering corporate power.
