This collection also traces recent ways in which the ethics of corporate governance have been articulated through reviews of practice, ethical re-evaluations, agency theory, the stakeholder concept, and comparative and international developments. It brings together a range of alternative perspectives and new directions in this vital and dynamic field. The authoritative volume will be an essential source of reference for students and scholars concerned with the power and responsibility of corporations.
