It is hard to overstate the profound influence of international corporations on global health—from tobacco, alcohol and food to injuries and occupational safety. The most fundamental problem in a globalized world is how to govern corporations and hold them accountable. In their brilliant book, Kenworthy, MacKenzie and Lee unmask the influence corporations have on human health and offer innovative solutions for transparency and good governance. If scholars and health advocates want to truly understand the complex intersection between corporations and health, this book is essential reading.
