This book explores and assesses the importance of the relationship between regional protest movements and the territorial organization of business interests. Drawing on comparative research into business interest associations in nine countries in Europe and North America, the authors show that regional differentiation is an important feature of systems of business associations in all countries. This book includes case studies of countries where such movements are an important phenomenon - Spain, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Canada and the UK. It also includes contrasting studies from West Germany and the USA, where regional movements have not been a prominent feature of national political life.
