A timely and definitive intellectual map of a key emerging discipline, the SAGE Handbook of Corporate Governance critically overviews the key themes, theoretical controversies, current research and emerging concepts that frame the field. Consisting of original substantive chapters by leading international scholars, and examining corporate governance from an inter-disciplinary basis, the text highlights how critical governance issues are to the formation, growth, financing, structural development, and strategic direction of companies and how corporate governance institutions in turn influence the innovation and development of industrial and economic systems globally. Comprehensive, authoritative and presented in a highly accessible framework, the Handbook is a significant resource to those with an interest in understanding this important emerging field.
