Routledge Contemporary Corporate Governance


About the Series

The Routledge Contemporary Corporate Governance Series aims to provide an authoritative, thought-provoking and well-balanced series of textbooks in the rapidly emerging field of corporate governance. The corporate governance literature traditionally has been scattered in the finance, economics, accounting, law and management literature. However the international controversy now associated with corporate governance has focused considerable attention on this subject and raised its profile immeasurably. Government, financial institutions, corporations and academics have become deeply involved in tackling the dilemmas of corporate governance due to widespread public concerns

The Routledge Contemporary Corporate Governance Series will make a significant impact in this emerging field: defining and illuminating problems; going beyond the official emphasis on regulation and procedures to understand the behaviour of executives, boards, and corporations; analysing the wider impact and relationships involved in corporate governance. Issues that would be covered in this series include:

  • Exploring the impact of the globalisation of corporate governance
  • Assessing ongoing contest between shareholder/stakeholder values
  • Examining how corporate governance values determine corporate objectives
  • Analysing how financial interests have overwhelmed corporate governance
  • Investigating the discourse of corporate governance
  • Considering the imperative of sustainability in corporate governance
  • Addressing the contemporary crises in corporate governance and how they might be resolved
