This text contains a clear explanation of the key issues and a number of illustrative cases which are very helpful. The international assessments are particularly recommended to help students see beyond the UK context.
A very interesting book in the area of Corporate Governance that covers this emerging area in a comprehensive and interesting manner.
I think that this book is a very good book as a case study source. At the same time I would rather call the author's attention to the connection between the araised questions in each case and the theoretical explanation thereafter. I believe that this connection is not only unstructured, but it is verg vague in relation to the characters of the questions.
This is an essential component of our course reading into CSR.
Added to the understanding of organizational principles and different issues at state level
one of the better texts in an increasingly crowded field
Concise textbook, well structured, valuable supporting case studies, international perspective.
A good reading material to support student understanding of the concept
I use this text as a reminder to MBA dissertation students about key issues and the impact of CG on organizations and their stakeholders.
It has some useful prompts for further research and study.
Good book on Corporate Governance. A recommended addition to Strategic Management textbook, in particular if students want to know more about Corporate Governance within the subject of Strategic Management.
Excellent source! It makes CG really interesting for students.
Offers a much more practical discussion that many competitor texts. Excellent use of case studies to back up arguments raised.
This new book on corporate governance enhances traditional books, applying a global and decision oriented perspective.
A good and very broad introduction into the main areas of corporate governance with a strong root in corporate governance practice but at the same time with a solid theoretical foundation.
As with all other corporate governance textbooks I know, the link to the results of econometric research is clearly underdeveloped.
Excellent mix of theory and practice
The text gave a good overview of corporate governance and the issues leaders face in dealing with boards.
