  • Provides a full discussion of corporate governance issues taking the broadest view of the corporate governance agenda.
  • Draws on the extensive and original research carried out by the authors and demonstrates the close relationship between academic research and professional practice.
  • Contains numerous contemporary illustrations and case studies, including a chapter dedicated to the collapse of Enron.
  • Focuses on the relevance of corporate governance reform throughout the world.
  • Highlights the importance of corporate social responsibility to companies and institutional investors from a corporate governance perspective.
  • Includes an appendix containing the Combined Code on Corporate Governance issued by the Financial Reporting Council in July 2003.
