Now in its third edition, Principles of Contemporary Corporate Governance offers comprehensive coverage of the key topics and emerging themes in corporate governance in the private sector. It explains both the principles of corporate governance systems and their real-world application in an authoritative and engaging manner. This fully updated edition includes a new chapter on shareholder activism and covers developments in the areas of corporate governance in the European Union, reporting, credit rating agencies, executive remuneration and board diversity. It addresses the impact of the GFC on corporate governance and the theoretical and ecomic aspects of governance, and further includes comparative sections, written by specialist contributors, on corporate governance in China, Indonesia, Japan and South Africa. Principles of Contemporary Corporate Governance is an indispensable resource for academic researchers, practitioners wanting a deeper understanding of the underlying principles of corporate governance and students of business and law studying corporate governance.
