  • Full description

    From the 'father of corporate governance' comes the new edition of this bestselling text, designed to equip students with a sound understanding of the frameworks that govern organisations. The fourth editions of Corporate Governance offers a comprehensive coverage of key principles combined with a strong practical focus through a clear, three-part structure.

    This book provides a new focus for understanding corporate governance that goes far beyond the regulations, rules, and voluntary codes: it has a new emphasis throughout on culture. For the first time, a distinction is drawn between Western and Eastern perceptions of corporate governance, and new cases from China (including Huawei) further support this new approach.

    New to this editions

    • Fully updated in light of the UK Corporate Governance Code (2018) and the World Economic Forum risk survey (2018)
    • New coverage of non-listed entities—not-for-profits, cooperatives, and charities—to reflect the growing diversity of organisations
    • Discussions of additional non-Western models such as the Keiretsu and Chaebol models used in Japan and South Korea, respectively
    • New case studies including organisations such as Huawei, the NHS, and Unilever
    • Increased coverage of board diversity, culture, corporate transparency, sustainability and business ethics, cyber risk, and digitisation.
  • About the author

    Bob Tricker is a former Professor of Finance at the University of Hong Kong and Honorary Professor at Hong Kong Baptist University and Hong Kong Open University. His previous books include Corporate Governance (Gower Press, 1984), the first book with that title.
