Empires of Profit tells a series of dramatic stories to illustrate the greed, benevolence, and ignorance of western business in the developing world. The stories - which are at times a shocking reminder of the origins of the present-day anti-capitalist movement - illustrate the extremely delicate and volatile nature of western involvement in the developing world. The message that emerges is clear: unless the lessons of the past are heeded - and corporate social responsibility taken seriously - the current wave of investment will be far less secure than most corporations believe.
