Now in its second edition, this well-established text combines student-focused writing and pedagogy with an international scope on corporate governance. The text has a strong theoretical base and encompasses the latest developments in corporate governance, including globalization, emerging markets, and changes in corporate governance codes.
The new edition features an expanded section on international governance, with sections on governance issues in Continental Europe, Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia and India, South Africa, and Brazil. These are placed in context in the concluding chapter, which discusses corporate governance internationally and why international issues are relevant to students.
Suitable for both undergraduate and graduate students taking a corporate governance course, the book engages students by drawing from a wealth of empirical, academic research. The text also contains excellent pedagogical features including topical case studies, thought provoking questions and exercises, useful chapter summaries and introductions, and helpful web links to an Online Resource Centre.
