This major four volume collection presents the most important classic and contemporary papers on corporate governance - an area that has attracted worldwide interest in the 1990s. Corporate governance consists of an interrelated set of mechanisms comprising institutional shareholders, boards of directors, managers remunerated according to performance, the market for corporate control, ownership structure, financial structure, relational investors and product market competition. Drawing on related disciplines such as finance, economics and management, this international and comparative collection reprints the most important published articles on the main elements of corporate governance in different countries. Corporate Governance will be an essential source of reference for students and researchers in economics, finance and management concerned with the role of the corporation in the modern economy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`The volumes are useful in reproducing many of the key readings across what is a broad area. It should certainly be ordered by all libraries, as no libraries are likely to have all the material contained here. . . the journal articles are reproduced with the original pagination, so these reproduced versions can still be used to follow up page citations made to the original articles.' -- Jonathan Michie and Christine Oughton, International Review of Applied Economics
`This edited collection of previously published work comes as a four-volume set and must surely represent one of the best attempts to date at producing the definitive review of the corporate governance literature . . . it is just about as comprehensive as is possible to get . . . the editors have succeeded in adding substantial value beyond that of the constituent papers through their careful selection, organisation and presentation of such a diverse range of material . . . even the more widely read corporate enthusiasts are sure to find something new . . . The four volumes are organised in such a way that they guide the reader naturally and effortlessly through the extensive and disorderly body of work that characterises the governance literature . . . the editorial team has succeeded in adding much needed structure to the bewildering array of research in this area. In addition, despite the rapid pace at which the corporate governance literature is developing, the clever choice of papers and the carefully crafted unifying framework ensure that this book will remain both informative and stimulating for many years to come . . . With a price tag of almost GBP500, it clearly requires a more substantial investment than the average book on corporate governance that one finds in university bookshops. Then again, of course, it is not like the average corporate governance book. As a source of reference material, it should prove extremely useful. As a way of organising one's thoughts, both for research and teaching purposes, it should prove invaluable. And as a stimulus for developing and exploring new ideas in the area of corporate governance, it will prove difficult to beat.' -- Steven Young, Accounting and Business Research
