Summary

''In a business environment that is increasingly volatile, now more than ever, business students must understand the relationships between managers, boards of directors, shareholders and investors. The new edition of this text offers an indispensable guide to the key concepts of corporate governance every student and business professional should know.'' ''It includes more exercises and student questions, penetrating analysis of the latest examples of corporate failure and controversy, and the lively ''cases in point'' which have characterized previous editions. The fully revised, web-based Instructor Manual is available to adopters, together with a web link to The Corporate Library, the leading independent research firm in the field.''--BOOK JACKET.
