'Convergence and Persistence in Corporate Governance is impressive in its theoretical and jurisdictional breadth. ... a valuable and high quality snapshot of contemporary corporate governance debate. While recognising economic forces driving convergence, the book provides sophisticated analysis of other constraining forces within a broader regulatory ecosystem. This analysis supports continued diversity in comparative corporate governance.' Sydney Law Review
Corporate governance is on the reform agenda all over the world. Is the Anglo-American model of shareholder capitalism destined to become the global corporate governance standard or will important differences persist? Leading scholars address this question with sophisticated political economy analysis that is also attuned to the legal frameworks. Enron has stirred an urgent round of corporate governance questioning. Will it stop a convergence that was in the works? Convergence and Persistence will become a key text for postgraduates and academics.
