From the Inside Flap:

The importance of corporate governance became dramatically clear at the beginning of the twenty-first century as a series of corporate meltdowns from managerial fraud, misconduct, and negligence caused a massive loss of shareholder wealth. But despite the heightened attention on corporate governance practices, many questions still exist.

That is why Corporate Governance, part of the Robert W. Kolb Series in Finance, is such a useful resource. Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, this book provides a comprehensive synthesis of the numerous theoretical and practical issues that arise from the debate on how to govern effectively.

With coverage of the systems, processes, and procedures integral to the relationship between managers, majority shareholders, and minority shareholders, this book offers a clear view of current governance practices and carefully examines the mechanisms that mitigate the principal-agent conflict.

Written by an array of corporate governance experts, the contributed chapters of this book offer multiple perspectives and contain a series of discussion questions and answers to help reinforce key concepts. The book:

  • Presents a brief history of corporate governance, details the relationship between corporate governance and firm performance, and discusses the separation of ownership and control

  • Examines the various aspects of internal governance including the role of the board of directors, as well as reviews the importance of compensation, equity ownership structure, and turnover as internal control mechanisms

  • Explores numerous external governance devices from non-executive to non-equity shareholders,and addresses the role that accounting, legal, and regulatory intervention play in corporate governance

Engaging and informative, Corporate Governance will help anyone gain a better understanding of this multifaceted subject for academic or applied purposes. This book provides a useful guide to the most essential concepts and principles of corporate governance.
