Editorial Reviews

"The recent global financial crisis has, once again, shown how crucial good corporate governance is for corporations, financial institutions, investors and whole economies. While much effort is being devoted worldwide to improving corporate governance, many questions remain on what works best.This book provides an up to date analysis of what corporate governance is, how it works (or not), and what it means for firms and investors. Presenting material in a very lucid manner, drawing on many real life cases, and taking a truly global perspective, Christine Mallin [the book] provides aninvaluable guide for all who want to master the complex subject." --Stijn Claessens, Senior Adviser, Federal Reserve Board and Professor, University of Amsterdam
