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. Corporate Governance, fourth edition, 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.


  • 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.
