An overview of the corporate governance system in a flexible, modular format.

Today the term “corporate governance” is familiar to almost everyone—however, this is mostly due to the emergence of so many shocking corporate scandals. The flexible, modular format of Corporate Governance sheds light on these scandals through a detailed explanation of our corporate governance mechanism, the various incentives within today’s governance system, a thorough explanation of the recent problems and scandals, and offers students potential solutions in context.

The Third Edition of Corporate Governance includes up-to-date material on the economic crisis of 2008-2009 and offers current scholarly research in Recent Research boxes throughout the text.
