Corporate Governance is an area that has grown rapidly in the last years fuelled by high profile corporate collapses such as Enron. This is a brand new student focused text, which takes an international approach to corporate governance. Well written and easy to engage with, building on a sound theoretical base the book encompasses the latest developments in corporate governance in an international context. Much of the material is centered on the UK, however there are separate chapters covering developments in continental European countries, central and eastern European countries, South East Asia and various other countries giving it truly international appeal. The text will help students understand the context in which corporate governance develops by examining the legal structure and capital market throughout each chapter. Suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate students studying a module in Corporate Governance, the book stimulates student interest by drawing from a range of empirical practitioner and academic research. The text contains excellent pedagogical features including topical case studies, thought provoking questions and exercises, useful chapter summaries and introductions and helpful web links.
