"Today, corporate governance is a topic at the center of public
policy debate in most industrialized countries. The range of
concerns; the variety of approaches; and their tendency to converge
in some areas or diverge in others (not always in the right

material here of enormous interest for scholars of comparative law
and economic regulation. And significantly, the presentation of

assembling an important publication, as well as for their own
contributions to interdisciplinary scholarship."
