9780273751250: International Corporate Governance

International Corporate Governance provides a thorough introduction to the state of the art of corporate governance research and practice. It covers a wide range of topics, including corporate control, regulation, behavioural issues and the role of stakeholders in corporate governance. The text not only reflects the multidisciplinary nature of corporate governance, but it also adopts an international perspective by highlighting the major differences in corporate control and corporate governance practice across the world. While rigorous, the text avoids needless jargon and uses language that is accessible to a wider audience. It also makes a critical assessment of current regulation, practice and research findings.

From the Back Cover:

'An excellent textbook which truly stands out. It is better than any book on corporate governance that I have seen', Luc Renneboog, Tilburg University

'Marc Goergen's book on corporate governance is by far the best textbook that has been published on the topic. He has done a wonderful job of covering the topics from a global perspective and I strongly recommend it to all scholars and students with an interest in corporate governance', Franklin Allen, Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

'An excellent and very comprehensive book. It should become a standard reference on corporate governance', Colin Mayer, Saïd Business School, University of Oxford
