No sooner than the Enron scandal (and other major US corporate failures unfolded) it became apparent the sundry issues of corporate governance that were being brought into question and deliberation were not simply issues peculiar to the US corporate governance context (which are covered in detail in this volume by leading US experts), but were of major concern also throughout Western Europe (aspects which are governed by UK, Italian, French and Scandanavian experts and which touch upon European scandals such as Parmalat). In fact, the corporate governance issues of the Enron débâcle are of a broader 'global concern', where the experiences of developing, emerging and transitioning economies present their own special perspectives and lessons to be learned (here experts from Russia and East Asia make significant contributions). In addition, the increasing interconnection of law and accounting rears its head as being of core importance-another topic that is discussed in detail throughout this volume. Further, special types of corporations (eg regulated financial institutions) and transactions (eg mergers and acquisitions) generate their own additional issues: these are also covered within this book.

This publication, comprised of 21 chapters prepared by leading experts from around the world, contributes constructively to the current ongoing comparative and international discussions and debates concerning the appropriate subjects, policies, and rules for modern corporate governance system(s)-as viewed in multifaceted and multi-layered context of true global dimensions.
