This book comprises a comprehensive survey of the state of the art and the most recent research being done on corporate governance in the triad -- Europe (with particular emphasis on Germany and the UK), the US and Japan. The comparative nature of the research brings forth new insights which studies conducted within one system may fail to produce.
Analysis of the most successful economies - the US, Europe and Japan - is a natural starting point for such research. In addition, it is;increasingly accepted that the analysis of institutions must also consider their roots, which can be both revealing and decisive when considering both current issues and the future (path dependence). The contributors to this volume represent a unique sample of scholars from the throughout triad and;across disciplines. Contributions from economists, law professors, historians and a few practitioners are successfully combined.
The volume has three parts: the first of which deals with the roots and perspectives of corporate governance. The second part analyses the different building blocks of a corporate governance system, while the final part presents studies that treat corporate governance systems in toto, with a special focus on making or facilitating comparative corporate governance research.
