9780198259893: Corporate Power and Responsibility: Issues in the Theory of Company Law (Clarendon Paperbacks)

In this important new study John Parkinson rejects the theory that the "internal affairs" of corporate organizations should be insulated from regulatory intervention and argues that a function of company law is to promote the public interest. He examines a number of topical and controversial issues from this perspective including the separation of ownership and control, corporate governance, and the role of markets in controlling management behavior. The book also explores the protection of interests largely ignored by company law such as those of employees and the local community and suggests new areas for reform.

About the Author:

J. E. Parkinson is at University of Bristol.

Review:

`a fascinating book ... if you want a book that tells you, the corporate lawyer, what you were doing in the world in which you operate - not just the nuts and bolts of law but the very essence of what law should seek to achieve in a corporate environment - then this book is a winner all the
way, one for the thinking corporate lawyer.' New Law Journal

`This is a marvellous book which deserves a wide audience: appealing not just to lawyers but to all those interested in companies, those at the sharp end of business as well as academics. It is an enlightening piece of scholarship ... wide-ranging ... There is much here which would be useful
to economists and lawyers alike. It is not written in the usually dry style of legal textbooks and is therefore accessible to readers from other disciplines. Lawyers will also be enriched by reading it ... Corporate Power and Responsibility is a thought-provoking book. It is an important work for
anyone interested in the theory of company law, particularly if one is concerned about the activities of large companies.'
Cambridge Law Journal

`John Parkinson ... has painstakingly worked through the details of legal implementation.'
The Guardian

`'The recent issue of this book as a paperback offers the opportunity for a brief review, a difficult task for so extensive and thought-provoking a book...the book is an immensely scholarly and painstaking study of many of the current issues facing publicly listed companies, the reading of
which no serious student should shirk...This reviewer can find no inaccuracies in the book.''
The Journal of Business Law
