Business Elites and Corporate Governance in France and the UK is a cross-national study of business elites and corporate governance in France and the UK. It examines corporate governance from a comparative standpoint and looks beneath the surface at the exercise of power and authority in two distinct national business systems. It explores key issues concerning business elites, their networks, recruitment and reproduction. It aims to shed light on the mechanisms that govern the stability and regeneration of business elites against the backdrop of an increasingly global economy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'In focusing on big companies and their leaders, this book, founded on a mass of original research, offers a different take on the dynamics of the global economy than prevailing stereotypes. National institutions, cultures and mindsets are shown to continue to hold sway in a world of competing capitalisms. It will shape the thought of business leaders, policy makers, and academics alike.' - Mark Casson, Director and Professor of Economics, Centre for Institutional Performance, University of Reading Business School, UK

'Power is the foundation of governing structures and regimes. And at the core of these are elites; socially organized, relationally embedded, and nationally and institutionally specific in their mechanisms of reproduction. Armed with appropriate theory, so often lacking in the corporate governance literature, this book is destined to be a landmark study of how comparative elites are organized and organize.' - Stewart Clegg, Professor of Management and Organization Theory, University of Technology, Australia

'To address relationships between business elites and governance immediately requires a robust analysis of trust, privilege, power and ideology - heady issues, especially when tackled within a comparative framework. This challenging book, based on extensive cross-national research, enlightens and provokes us all to rethink some of our easily assumed views.' - Dame Sandra Dawson, Director and KPMG Professor of Management Studies, Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, UK

'In a rigorous and sweeping analysis of corporate elites and governance in the UK and France, Maclean, Harvey, and Press not only tackle a fundamental question of interest to scholars and practitioners alike, they unearth a veritable catalog of insights on what is really going on at the very top of the business elite. This book is destined to become both a wellspring for future research and the reference book on the subject.' - Sydney Finkelstein, Steven Roth Professor of Management, Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College, USA
