Professor Mallin has once again produced an unrivalled and comprehensive text that thoroughly explores some of the more challenging aspects of corporate governance in the 21st century. Illustrated by topical case studies and analysis, this title is valuable not only to students and academics but to professionals, practitioners, management, and board directors. ( Philip Armstrong, Director of Governance, Gavi and Vice Chair, International Corporate Governance Network)
A very well-written and perceptive guide to contemporary global corporate governance. ( Martyn Jones, University of Winchester)
The recent global financial crisis has, once again, shown how crucial good corporate governance is for corporations, financial institutions, investors and whole economies. While much effort is being devoted worldwide to improving corporate governance, many questions remain on what works best. This book provides an up to date analysis of what corporate governance is, how it works (or not), and what it means for firms and investors. Presenting material in a very lucid manner, drawing on many real life cases, and taking a truly global perspective, Christine Mallin [the book] provides an invaluable guide for all who want to master the complex subject. ( Stijn Claessens, Senior Adviser, Federal Reserve Board and Professor, University of Amsterdam)
