About this book

Introduction

Corporate Governance in the US and Europe provides a comprehensive and concise overview of the most recent developments in corporate governance. It is based on a recent joint conference arranged by New York University and the London School of Economics, which brought together eminent academics and practitioners, including Michael Jensen in Finance and Martin Lipton in Law, to discuss the stock market boom-and-bust, and the recent corporate scandals. The book is aimed at practitioners, policy makers and academics who have to deal with corporate governance.

Reviews

'The importance of effective corporate governance to the creation and safeguarding of wealth is hard to overstate. Its fascination is that, being mainly about people and behaviour, it is a live topic and will never be 'done and dusted'. This book provides a valuable over-view of many different aspects of the subject and points to where the debate might be headed.' - Sir Derek Higgs, Chairman, Partnerships UK plc and author of Review of the Role and Effectiveness of Non-Executive Directors

'Those who are locked day to day in governance issues on individual Boards will find it stimulating, as I have done, to sample this selection of current views on governance from a wider perspective.' - Sir Christopher Hogg, Former Chairman of Glaxo SmithKline plc and Reuters plc
