Product Description

Review

"Everyone interested in business issues should welcome the publication of a new edition of this first–rate text." Professor Brian Cheffins, University of Cambridge <!––end––>

"Monks and Minow is truly a remarkable achievement – it combines a global perspective and a finely balanced account of regulatory policy with illuminating case studies of how governance works inside companies. It remains the key point of reference in its field." Simon Deakin, University of Cambridge

From the Back Cover

This book provides a comprehensive look at the history, the myth, the reality, and the future of corporate governance issues. It explains how the roles of shareholders, managers and directors have been transformed by the abuses and excesses of the takeover era, the exponential growth of the institutional investor, and the unprecedented ability of shareholders to find each other on the internet. The second edition has been extensively re–written and updated. Changes include: Excerpts from NACD reports on board professionalism and CEO succession. Impact of the internet on shareholder communications and disclosure. New cases – Daimler–Benz; Dow–Jones; Saatchi & Saatchi; Furr′s/Luby′s; Mirror; Brazil; Political contributions (US/UK). Updated cases – Inc General Motors; Sears. Including numerous case studies and supplementary online material, this book is an indispensable resource for students of business, corporate finance, law, and public policy.

Format: Paperback
This book sits uncomfortably between the 'everything you need to know quickly' guides and the specialist regulatory and practice guides. It is full of excellent guidance and example, yet not fully cohesive or necessarily easy to find the key issue that you seek. At its best, this volume represents 'the professor in discussion with advanced students who are widely reading elsewhere too' - and valuable for that. I am glad to have read it. It provoked thought and some discussion with colleagues - but I found it ultimately not as useful as the blurb might indicate, nor as useful as I had hoped as a resource to have to hand for reference.

Format: Paperback
This book focuses on the USA. It has a more thorough and better coverage than Christine Mallin's 'Corporate Governance' and Jill Solomon's 'Corporate Governance and Accountability', but it is aimed mainly at practitioners. The book's main advantage is the extensive list of case studies. Its main disadvantage is the lack of thorough academic grounding.
