Corporations as Social Institutions: A Sociological Perspective on the Legal Regulation of Corporations

 
9783639192995: Corporations as Social Institutions: A Sociological Perspective on the Legal Regulation of Corporations

Corporations are no longer simply a type of business structure; they are dominant social institutions. As institutions, corporations are archetypes of contemporary complex social organisation and should, therefore, be a central concern for sociology. Yet with few notable exceptions, sociologists have failed to address their increasingly dominant position in contemporary societies. In this book I argue the importance of a renewed sociological interest in corporations. This must acknowledge, but go beyond, the political-economic outcomes of corporations to address the profound consequences of the legal foundations of the corporate form. Corporations are created and regulated by legal doctrine; it is only with a legal mandate that corporations are able to act as employers, suppliers and investors. On this basis, I claim that any understanding of corporate dominance and its effects must commence with an appreciation of the laws that enable the corporation to exist and operate, particularly corporate personhood laws. The social urgency of this argument is made concrete via case studies of industrial disease, occupational health and safety and industry concentration by corporations.
