International Corporate Governance : A Comparative Approach Hardback


Thomas Clarke's International Corporate Governance offers a comprehensive guide to corporate governance forms and institutions and examines the recurring crises in corporate governance and the resulting corporate governance reform around the world. While the popular structure of the original text has been retained, significant changes have been made to take account of the global financial crisis, ever-changing regulations and worldwide governance developments.

Key topics include:The governance failures of international corporations such as Enron and Lehman Brothers Diversity in corporate and institutional forms across the worldThe role of international corporate governance standardsDigital disruption in capital markets and proposals for rebuilding commitment to long-term investingThe impact of financialization and corporate governance practices on increasing inequalityThe links between corporate governance, corporate social responsibility and sustainabilityThis textbook contains a wealth of pedagogical material to guide the reader through this complex subject, including student questions to help with assessments, and a new companion website.

There are also thirteen forensic case studies which scrutinize the governance failures seen at RBS, UBS, BP, Volkswagen and many other international corporations. International Corporate Governance will be an essential text for anybody studying corporate governance at the advanced undergraduate, master's or executive level.
