'Throughout the world there is conflict between the desire to reap wealth from strong corporate functioning and the imperative of preserving the integrity of the sovereign state. Chris Mallin has assembled a collection of delightful essays describing the current circumstances of corporate governance in a variety of different countries. The volume reads like a story, fascinating accessible and informative. The book can be read for information in each article or as a totality giving insight into the critical balancing of interests required in particular countries. Anyone buying this book – and you should – will have a fine experience.' – Robert Monks, Lens Governance Advisors, US The second edition of this major Handbook provides an up-to-date and comprehensive analysis of the development of corporate governance across a range of countries including Australia, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, China, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Turkey and the UK. Additional coverage in the second edition includes Norway, Hungary, Brazil, and Malaysia. The Handbook reveals that whilst the stage in the corporate governance life cycle may vary from country to country, there are certain core features which emerge such as the importance of transparency, disclosure, accountability of directors and protection of minority shareholders' rights.
