States and Firmsis a study of the political economy of the multinational enterprise and looks at the internationalization of enterprises in chemicals and electronics Razeen Sally examines how and why the internationalization of these enterprises has interacted with their "embeddedness" in the domestic structures of their home countries, particularly in terms of their power relationships with home governments and financial institutions. This book takes a firm-level approach to put the spotlight on fundamental questions of political economy and international business. Focus is placed on the roles played by multinational enterprises as political actors in domestic governmental policy, their financial relations with banks in France and Germany, and their political activity within the European community.
