Product Description

Review

"In addition to being an authoritative text on the basic principles of corporate governance, this book is packed with brilliant case studies that describe the biggest corporate meltdowns and implosions of the past decade and beyond." -- Greg Farrell, USA Today

"The new edition of Monks and Minow is even more comprehensive and thought-provoking than before. It is essential reading for corporate governance scholars and practitioners alike." -- Simon Deakin, Judge Institute, Cambridge University

"Written and kept up to date by leading governance thinkers, this classic work remains an invaluable resource for anyone interested in corporate governance."
-- Lucian Bebchuk, Harvard Law School

From the Back Cover

In a business environment that is increasingly volatile, now more than ever, business students must 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.

Corporate Governance provides an authoritative overview, offering the latest codes of practice, new cases of current interest; and a web link to The Corporate Library, the leading independent research firm in the field. It is an invaluable resource tool for business managers and students alike.

2 of 2 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.
