Product Description


"The most comprehensive examination and commentary on corporate governance that I have yet seen ... If I had to choose one book among the dozens available to explain and illumin­ate the complexities of corporate governance, this definitive treatise would be it." Hugh Parker <!––end––>

"Corporate Governance is a lucid and comprehensive introduction to a subject that is of critical importance to anyone interested in business. Everyone, from student, to scholar, to corporate employee, officer, director, or shareholder, will find it valuable." Donald Jacobs, Dean, Kellogg School of Business, Northwestern University

"This is what we′ve needed – a solid text on corporate governance written by two of the real stars in the field." D. Jeanne Patterson, former Associate Professor of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indiana University

"A fresh, thoughtful, and timely look at the problem of corporate governance... a little gem." Joseph A. Grundfest, Stanford Law School

"Exactly what′s needed for MBA students and management professionals." Gordon Clark, Dean, Faculty of Arts, Monash University

"The MBA student seeking real world examples will be well satisfied with this material ... a major strength of the book is the practitioner perspective that the authors bring to the area." Stuart L. Gillan, The University of Texas at Austin

"... authoritative and informative, with some fascinating case vignettes ... A monumental work." Bob Tricker, Editor, Corporate Governance

" carefully blends economic and legal aspects of corporate governance. Highly recommended for use in seminars on board practices, MBA programs, and corporate governance forums." Cornelis A. de Kluyver, former Dean, School of Business Administration, George Mason University

"Provides a strong theoretical framework for the subject. It gives meaning to the important pub­lic policy issues by numerous examples, case studies, and policy statements." Professor J. Fred Weston, UCLA

(Praise for the first edition.)

"Corporate Governance 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, Judge Institute, University of Cambridge

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

In a business environment that is increasingly volatile, it is essential for business students to understand the relationships between managers, boards of directors, shareholders, and investors.

The new edition of this acclaimed text offers an indispensable guide to the key concepts of corporate governance every student and business professional should know. It includes more exercises and student questions, penetrating analysis of the latest examples of corporate failure and controversy, and the lively "cases in point" which have characterized previous editions. The fully revised, web–based Instructor Manual is available to adopters, together with a web link to The Corporate Library, the leading independent research firm in the field.

Monks and Minow have produced a trove that defines a field. Their fifth edition of Corporate Governance unpacks and exposes the intricacies, conflicts and misalignments that too often characterize today s global capital market. And they do it in a readable format that is bound to remain the essential, encyclopedic resource for anyone probing the way public companies really work.
Stephen Davis, Executive Director, Millstein Center for Corporate Governance–& Performance Yale School of Management

Robert Monks and Nell Minow have been key contributors to corporate governance debates and developments for many years. This widely used textbook, now in its fifth edition, provides readers with the benefit of the insights and wisdom they have accumulated in the process.
Professor Lucian A. Bebchuk, Harvard Law School

Monks & Minow has become the authoritative teaching text book in corporate governance.  There is no real rival.  It has long been a must read for any serious student of corporate governance and has been a required purchase in my corporate governance seminar since it first appeared in 1995.  No corporate governance library would be complete without a copy.
Charles M. Elson , John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance, Alfred Lerner College of Business & Economics, University of Delaware

Monks and Minow are acknowledged pioneers in the corporate governance movement; articulate, honest, and constructive activists, of which we need more.  They will make managers, boards, shareholders and regulators, and all of us, "think" hard about personal values and objectives, let alone those of the corporation. No one else has undertaken this task as comprehensively, using text and case examples.
Ira Millstein, Senior Partner, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP., Theodore Nierenberg Adjunct Professor of Corporate Governance at the Yale School of Management

The fifth edition of Monks and Minow′s classic adds to their already rich study of corporate governance a timely reflection on the challenges presented by the recent financial crisis. From this important book, students, academics, practitioners, politicians and the general public will receive a wealth of insight and analysis derived from the vast knowledge and experience of the book′s distinguished authors.
Professor Andrew T. Williams, Co–Author of The Rise of Fiduciary Capitalism Associate, The Elfenworks Center for the Study of Fiduciary Capitalism, Saint Mary s College of California.

Corporate governance defines the system of checks and balances required to keep corporations vital, focused and poised to take advantage of change. In this book, Monks and Minow lucidly describe the structures and processes of governance and illuminate their text with relevant and up–to–date case studies. This is the one volume you need in order to understand the fundamental issues currently facing the corporate world and those it serves; I cannot commend it too highly.
Adrian Cadbury

In the 5th edition of Corporate Governance , Bob Monks and Nell Minow provide an interesting, exciting and thought–provoking exposition of the state of corporate governance across the world today.  Key areas of particular interest are discussed with a deep and discerning insight whilst a rich tapestry of case studies provides the reader with real world illustrations of the issues which may arise.  The book is comprehensive in its coverage and with its extensive use of topical examples is a must buy for everyone with an interest in corporate governance.
Chris Mallin, Professor of Corporate Governance and Finance, Director Centre for Corporate Governance Research, Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham, UK

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Michael Lane on 1 May 2009
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.
