David / Westerhuis The Power of Corporate NetworksCorporate networks, the links between companies and their leaders, reflect a country’s economic organization and its corporate governance system. Most research on corporate networks focuses on individual countries orparticulartime periods, however, making fruitful comparisons over longer periods of time difficult. This book provides a unique long-term analysis of the rise, consolidation, decline, and occasional re-emergenceof these networks in fourteen countries across North and South America, Europe, and Asiain the 20th and early 21st centuries.
In this volume, the editors bring together the most internationally well-known specialists to investigate the long-term development of corporate networks.Using a combination of quantitative and qualitative research approaches, the authors describe the main developments and changes in thecorporate network over time by focusing on important network indicators in benchmark years, and identify historical explanations for these developments. This unique, long-term perspective allows readers insight into how and why national corporate networks have evolved over time.
