Corporate Governance: A Global Perspective provides a comprehensive introduction to corporate governance theory and practice. Covering topics such as ownership and control, boards of directors and emerging markets, this text highlights the multidisciplinary nature of corporate governance and demonstrates that there is much more to it than compliance with codes of best practice. This edition covers important issues relating to the design of capitalist systems, discussing how emerging economies such as China escaped the Financial Crisis unscathed and exploring the impact of immigration and rising inequality. Corporate Governance: A Global Perspective is suitable for undergraduate, Master's and MBA students. This newly acquired title has been thoroughly revised by Cengage to reflect the latest development in Corporate Governance, including updates to regulation and codes of best practice.
