Review
Review from previous edition I have always regarded Bob Tricker to be the father of corporate governance since his 1984 book introduced me to the words 'corporate governance' (Sir Adrian Cadbury, former Managing Director and Chairman of Cadbury-Schweppes)

We studied "corporate governance" but never knew its name until Bob Tricker defined the field. Thirty years later, he is still in the vanguard of ensuring effective performance and social accountability, rooted in rigorous research. Governance is defining the issue of the 21st century and Bob Tricker our most knowledgeable teacher (James McRitchie, Founder and Publisher of corpgov.net)

Bob Tricker's work is comprehensive, insightful, and provides an overview of international corporate governance that is second to none. His ability to take a difficult subject like corporate governance and substantiate the academic theories with practices has made the book a worthwhile and useful addition to the library. (Professor Greg Li, Adjunct Professor and chief of corporate governance system architect, G. Li & Company)

The book undoubtedly is the most authoritative and convincing account of corporate governance available, which all readers will find illuminating and highly instructive (Professor Tom Clarke, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia and author of Theories of Corporate Governance)

This is the definitive account of the origins and the history of corporate governance. It sketches the development of governance with a magisterial pen covering forty years and all continents. For anyone interested in the field, you must read this book, no - you must own this book. (Robert AG Monks, advocate of better corporate governance and author of Corporate Governance)
