The corporate mega-mergers of the 1980s and 1990s raise many troubling questions for social scientists and legal scholars. Do corporate globalism and the new, streamlined corporation help or hinder the development of civil society? Does the new power that increasingly deregulated businesses wield undermine the rights of citizens, or is this threat being exaggerated? Who has the authority to get things done in a corporation's name and who can be held legally responsible for a corporation's misbehavior? What role, if any, should the courts play in strengthening the rights of individuals who challenge the actions of big business?

David Sciulli maps the legal limits of corporate power in our democratic society, and explores the role of the corporate judiciary in creating public policy. He argues that the judiciary must be more vigilant and act to curb corporate abuses. He demonstrates that when corporations exercise their private power in civil society, they are just as capable as the state of exercising it in ways that are dangerous, arbitrary, and challenge the basic institutional arrangements of society. Finally, Sciulli calls for sociologists to involve themselves more deeply in issues of corporate governance and commit their discipline to influencing the decisions of the courts.

About the Author:

David Sciulli is Professor of Sociology at Texas A&M University. He is the author of Societal Constitutionalism.

Review:

"Corporate Power in Civil Society is well-written, and it brims with interesting insights. Sciulli's careful attention to the broader civil context of corporations and his close attention to the cases he examines make him an excellent sleuth for uncovering the reasons for and the implications of judicial behavior. In drawing on sociological theories to inform corporate law, the book makes a refreshing and timely contribution."

-Contemporary Sociology

"His most innovative contribution is to fuse sociological theories of civil society with corporate law."

-Social Control and Law

"This book is a significant contribution to . . . broad political thought, one that should stimulate a great deal more."

-New Political Science
