More Information
In this unique collection of published articles by leading scholars in the field, Professor Filatotchev examines critical governance issues relating to different stages of the business life cycle. He identifies and reviews the role of factors such as ownership structure, shareholder activism and corporate boards in different firm-level and industrial contexts.

This volume extends our understanding of governance issues beyond the narrow confines of economics and finance perspectives and provides a better account for the interdependencies of corporate governance practices within diverse technical, managerial, and institutional environments.

The editor has written an authoritative introduction which provides explanatory information and points the way for future research in this area.
Critical Acclaim
‘The book addresses a subject that has received far too little attention, since most studies either focus on mature firms or start-ups. The collected papers provide an excellent start in critiquing traditional agency theory by beginning to place our understanding of organizations in the context of both their internal and external environments. Perhaps it can help corporate governance, as an academic field, break out of its own relative path dependency.’
