About the Author:

Robert A.G. Monks and Nell Minow are founders of The Corporate Library, the leading independent research firm dedicated to corporate governance. Formerly, they were principals of the Lens Fund, 'a vehicle for collective action' that used shareholder activism to improve corporate governance -- and shareholder returns in its portfolio companies, and officers of Institutional Shareholder Services, a proxy advisory firm. Monks and Minow have also collaborated on two other books – ‘Power and Accountability’ (1991) and ‘Watching the Watchers’ (Blackwell Publishing, 1996).
