CORPORATE GOVERNANCE Business Ethics and CSR - With Case Studies and Major Corporate Scandals, 2nd Edn - J.P. Sharma

Reviews :

"Professor Sharmas book is a contemporary guide to the subject as a whole. Clearly his book will be of direct value to those studying and teaching the way in which companies are and should be governed, but it will also be of value to those concerned with the governance of a much wider range of institutions in the public and voluntary sectors." - Sir Adrian Cadbury

"It seems like anything in the area of ethics and CSR that has happened anywhere in the world, Professor Sharmas book has it. His analyses are very insightful and reflect the depth of his knowledge and understanding of the subject." - Prof. A. D. Amar

"Professor Sharma continues as a recognized champion of corporate governance, and his work in this new edition shows us why precisely this is so. One of the many strengths of his long standing work on corporate governance lies in his ability to bring theory and practice together clearly and concisely." - Erik Banks

"This second edition bears testimony to the scholarship and diligence you have brought to the task not only thoroughly revising material to bring it up-to-date but in adding new thoughts which reflect current thinking. What I particularly like about this volume is that issues like whistle blowing, corporate funding of political parties and shareholder activism are handled." - Prof. Stuart Locke
