Tethered Fates explores the challenge of safeguarding economic rights beyond the factory floor in global supply chains. Drawing on a 7,000-company database, it maps trends in company-community interaction through "stakeholder dialogue."

Tim Bthe, Perspectives on Politics This book is a timely addition to the literature on the promise and limitation of CSR [corporate social responsibility] and the private governance of transnational production.... a wealth of methodological insights...allows Hertel to provide fascinating, empirically rich accounts of individual everyday socioeconomic challenges in light of the local incarnation of economic globalization and perceptions of community needs, as well as knowledge of, interest in,
experiences with, and assessments of stakeholder dialogues between the local community and the companies that tie them to global value chains.

Political Science, The Pennsylvania State University

This book is an important contribution to the ongoing debates around Business and Human Rights (BHR). The research is grounded in case studies where Hertel argues for an alternative Worker-driven Social Responsibility (WSR) paradigm developed by workers and community-based allies. The book also illuminates the potential and limits to WSR and BHR strategies, and points to the need to look at structural roots of poverty and concludes with a renewed call for more robust
theory and practice that foregrou...
