Comprehensive and up-to-date, this important textbook analyzes the escalating crisis in corporate governance and the growing interest in its reform across the globe.

Written by a leading name in the field of corporate governance from a genuinely international perspective, this excellent textbook provides a balanced analysis of the relative strengths and weaknesses of the Anglo-Saxon, European and Asian traditions of corporate governance; offering a prognosis of the future development, complexity and diversity of corporate governance forms and systems.

Illustrated with a wealth of up-to-the minute case studies and packed full of excellent illustrative material that guides student readers through this complex subject, International Corporate Governance is a must read for anyone studying corporate governance today.

About the Author:

Thomas Clarke is Director of the Centre for Corporate Governance and Professor of Management at the University of Technology, Sydney. Formerly DBM Professor of Corporate Governance at Leeds Business School and Visiting Professor at CEIBS, Shanghai, he was a member of the RSA Tomorrow’s Company Inquiry that influenced the review of UK company law. At the OECD in Paris he helped develop the international corporate governance code adopted by governments throughout the world.

Review:

'Professor Clarke sets out to cover every aspect of the theory and practice of corporate governance across the world and succeeds in doing so, adding a set of relevant and riveting case studies for good measure. Taking account of the astonishing rapidity of developments in this field internationally, his book represents a remarkable achievement... It will set a benchmark against which to evaluate and measure progress in the field of corporate governance' From the foreword by Sir Adrian Cadbury.

'Professor Clarke has met the significant challenge of offering a substantial overview of the continually changing landscape of corporate governance. Integrating theory and practice, the book's coverage is both comprehensive and authoritative, providing an essential reference point for students, scholars and practitioners' Laura F. Spira, Professor of Corporate Governance, Oxford Brookes University, UK.

'How corporations answer calls by shareholders, stakeholders, and governments to be more responsive to ambient societies has to be a central theme in any leading edge corporate governance text. This book does much better than any other in discussing the full range of issues in corporate governance today and in circling the globe to describe the various governance approaches and devices' Douglas M. Branson, W. Edward Sell Chair in Business Law, University of Pittsburgh, USA.
