This book comprises a comprehensive survey of the most recent research being done on corporate governance in the triad -- Europe (with particular emphasis on Germany and the UK), the US and Japan. The comparative nature of the research brings forth new insights which studies conducted within one system may fail to produce. The contributors to this volume represent a unique sample of scholars from throughout the triad and across disciplines.
