- Donald Nordberg - Bournemouth University, Westminster Business School
This book offers a fresh look at the commonly accepted view of what constitutes good governance. Exploring the contexts of board decisions, Nordberg draws upon his academic research and years of business and financial journalism in Europe, North America and Asia to provide a distinctive and pertinent contribution to the literature on corporate governance.

This book will be of interest to upper level undergraduate and MBA students taking courses in corporate governance and leadership.
The companion website includes Instructor materials such as an Instructors Manual, PowerPoint Slides, Case Discussions, and Policy & Theory Discussions and Student Materials to help students study effectively and efficiently.
This text contains a clear explanation of the key issues and a number of illustrative cases which are very helpful. The international assessments are particularly recommended to help students see beyond the UK context.
A very interesting book in the area of Corporate Governance that covers this emerging area in a comprehensive and interesting manner.
I think that this book is a very good book as a case study source. At the same time I would rather call the author's attention to the connection between the araised questions in each case and the theoretical explanation thereafter. I believe that this connection is not only unstructured, but it is verg vague in relation to the characters of the questions.
This is an essential component of our course reading into CSR.
Added to the understanding of organizational principles and different issues at state level
one of the better texts in an increasingly crowded field
Concise textbook, well structured, valuable supporting case studies, international perspective.
A good reading material to support student understanding of the concept
I use this text as a reminder to MBA dissertation students about key issues and the impact of CG on organizations and their stakeholders.
It has some useful prompts for further research and study.
Good book on Corporate Governance. A recommended addition to Strategic Management textbook, in particular if students want to know more about Corporate Governance within the subject of Strategic Management.
