Written by leading subject expert Christine Mallin, Corporate Governance combines clear, straightforward coverage of theory with a wealth of topical examples of corporate governance to introduce students to both the essential principles of the subject and how they apply in practice.

Extracts from the Financial Times, case studies, and questions for discussion ensure the reader can relate key ideas and concepts to the real world of business, management, and finance. In addition, broad coverage of international attitudes and approaches to governance allow students to develop a more complete understanding of business issues on a global scale.

The book is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre.
