Reviews

"This interesting collection of essays provides stimulating linkage from the origins of shareholding in the Dutch East India company over 400 years ago to the controversies in our era over executive pay, shareholder rights, and the workings of corporate governance. The chapters enlighten us about past , present and where to go in the future." - Peter Gourevitch, Professor, School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, University of California, San Diego, and co-author of Political Power and Corporate Control

"This is a fascinating collection of papers on the early evolution of the corporation and shareholder advocacy. The carefully researched descriptions of the introduction of corporate governance in different parts of the world appreciably extend our understanding of the evolution of the corporation and provide important insights into modern corporate governance debates." - Professor Colin Mayer, Peter Moores Dean, Said Business School, University of Oxford
