Ronald W. Cox is professor of politics and international relations at Florida International University.

Chapter Two: Transnational Interest Blocs in the U.S., the E.U. and Japan
Chapter Three: Corporate Power and Global Value Chains
Chapter Four: Labor in Global Value Chains
Chapter Five: The Crisis of Neoliberal Capitalism

By bringing class analysis back into structural studies of International Political Economy, Cox provides substantive insight into the origins of the current antagonism toward globalization among workers in rich and poor countries alike. The book is an important counter-point to liberal assumptions about trade and investment.
— Kathryn C. Lavelle, Case Western Reserve University
Corporate Power, Class Conflict and the Crisis of the New Globalization is a tour-de-force of critical sociology, meticulously researched and innovative in its approach to global capitalism. The book contributes both to our understanding and to the urgent quest for transformative change.
— William K. Carroll, University of Victoria
Ronald Cox's new study of the politics and economics of globalization is well researched and lucidly written.
You do not need to agree with all of it to recognize its importance and relevance.
