Item description for Decline of the Corporate Community: Network Dynamics of the Dutch Business Elite by Eelke M. Heemskerk...

Traditionally, much of big business in the industrialized Western world has been organized around particular corporate societies---notoriously referred to as "old boy" networks. With the recent drift toward a more liberal market economy, however, these networks have been showing signs of decline---in some cases, all but disappearing. Eelke M. Heemskerk combines formal network analysis and interviews with key members of the corporate elite in order to examine how this decline has affected Dutch capitalism. Even in a liberal market economy, however, corporate directors need social networks to communicate and coordinate their strategic decisions, and Decline of the Corporate Community considers the shift of the corporate elite to the new private and informal circles where networking takes place.

What other people say:

Amid the many discussions of the impact of globalization on national
economies and corporate networks, there are surprisingly few studies
that provide detailed empirical analyses. This well-written book by
Eelke Heemskerk is remarkable in providing a longitudinal study of the
ties among Dutch corporations and their managers and the relation of
these ties to important social questions regarding governance and
compensation. Heemskerk looks at the grain of sand of Holland and
arrives thoughtfully at a diagnosis of the corporate changes found today
in many advanced and emerging economies. The care to position Holland
relative to the studies of other countries makes the book an excellent

Bruce Kogut
Eli Lilly Professor of Innovation, Business, and Society

Through comprehensive analyses of the Dutch corporate board network
over time, as well as interviews with many of the key players,
Heemskerk explains how the old community fell apart, and along the
way provides an insightful account of how economic elite structures
evolve due to internal and external pressures."

Business, University of Michigan
