9780199552702: Corporate Governance: Principles, Policies and Practices

Corporate Governance: Principles, Policies and Practices enables students to understand the major aspects of corporate governance and appreciate the nature, functions and realities of boards of directors and other governing bodies. Taking an international perspective, the author examines different models and theories of corporate governance and applies them in a real world context. Theoretical insights from economics, law, psychology and sociology and their influence on corporate governance are analysed at a level which is suitable for MBA and Masters students. The author has been examining governance issues for 30 years and is credited as being the person who coined the phrase "corporate governance" in 1984. This experience-led discussion and use of case studies ranging from Northern Rock to Lord Black lend a practical emphasis to this text.

The textbook will be accompanied by an online resource center which will comprise the following features:

Student site:
Links to corporate governance codes, the SOX Act and the UK Companies Act.
Links to further reading and resources.
Self-assessment exercises.
MP3 files of interviews with board members and experts in the field.

Lecturer site (password protected):

About the Author:

Robert Tricker is Honorary Professor at the University of Hong Kong School of Business and Tutor at Hong Kong Baptist University.

Review:

I have always regarded you as the Father of Corporate Governance since your 1984 book introduced me to the words corporate governance Sir Adrian Cadbury This is the definitive account of the origins and the history fo Corporate Governance. It sketches the development of governance with a magisterial pen covering forty years and all the continents. For anyone interested in the field, you must read this book, no - you must own this book. Bob Monks, Advocate of better corporate governance and author of Corporate Governance As the man who coined the phrase corporate governance to describe how power is exercised over corpration, Bob Tricker shares a lifetime of knowledge that transcends the many changing fashions and fads of a subject. Shann Turnbull (Australia), Author of Wider aspects of Company Direction (1975) - before the term 'corporate governance' was coined - and many other works This work reflects the experience and wisdom of a founding father of contemporary corporate governance. Bob Tricker offers a penetrating analysis of corporate governance, highlighted by remarkable evidence. The book undoubtedly is the most authoritative and convincing account of corporate governance available, which all readers will find illuminating and highly instructive. Professor Tom Clarke, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia and Author of Theories of Corporate Governance A great teacher should be able to bring out simplicity from a most complex subject, and having done that, guide us away from over generalization and cultural myopia that the simplicity may bring. This is the style of elegance that Bob Tricker brings to this book, turning CG into a language for laypersons. Dr Gregg Li, Principal, Corporate Governance Practice, Aon Global, Hong Kong Corporate Governance: Principles, Policies and Practices reflects the author's worldwide experience and multi-faceted perspective on the critical subject he has been instrumental in naming and advancing. James Mcritchie, publisher of CorpGov.net
