The second edition of this well-established text is student- focused with an international approach to corporate governance. Well written and easy to engage with, a sound theoretical base is built upon to encompass the latest developments in corporate governance. The increasingly topical areas of globalization and emerging markets are tackled and changes in corporate governance codes in the UK and internationally are accounted for. The new edition features an expanded section on International Governance, with sections on governance issues in Continental Europe, Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia and India, South Africa, and Brazil. These are placed in context in the concluding chapter, which discusses Corporate Governance internationally and why international issues are important to the student. Suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate students studying a module in Corporate Governance, the book stimulates student interest by drawing from a range of empirical, practitioner and academic research.The text contains excellent pedagogical features including topical case studies, thought provoking questions and exercises, useful chapter summaries and introductions and helpful web links to an Online Resource Centre that features a wealth of resources and pedagogy. This is the only European textbook in the field of corporate governance and so it is the key text for all students of the subject. Online Resource Centre For Students: crosswords created from the key glossary terms, fill in the gaps questions, articles and links. For lecturers: PowerPoint slides.

On the Theories of Corporate Governance, convergence theory was explored though it seems like there is more to be done in this area. I strongly recommend this book to students that are writing their dissertation on corporate governance, as well as PhD students specialising in this more
