In addition to its authoritative overview of the history, the myth and the reality of corporate governance, this new edition has been updated to include:
- Analysis of the latest cases of corporate disaster;
- An overview of corporate governance guidelines and codes of practice in developing and emerging markets
- New cases: Adelphia; Arthur Andersen; Tyco Laboratories; Worldcom; Gerstner's pay packet at IBM
Once again in the new edition of their textbook, Robert A. G. Monks and Nell Minow show clearly the role of corporate governance in making sure the right questions are asked and the necessary checks and balances in place to protect the long-term, sustainable value of the enterprise.
A CD-ROM containing a comprehensive case study of the Enron collapse, complete with senate hearings and video footage, accompanies the text.
