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.
