The Academy of Management is proud to announce the fourth volume of the Academy of Management Annals. This exciting series follows one guiding principle: The advancement of knowledge is possible only by conducting a thorough examination of what is known and unknown in a given field. Such assessments can be accomplished through comprehensive, critical reviews of the literature, crafted by informed scholars who determine when a line of inquiry has gone astray, and how to steer the research back onto the proper path.

The Annals provide just such essential reviews. Written by leading management scholars, they are invaluable for ensuring the timeliness of advanced courses, for designing new investigative approaches, and for identifying faulty methodological or conceptual assumptions. The Annals strive each year to synthesize a vast array of primary research; recognizing past principal contributions whilst illuminating potential future avenues of inquiry.

Volume 4 of the Annals explores a wide spectrum of research: comparative and international corporate governance, entrepreneurship and epistemology, continuing professional development and stakeholder theory. Volume 4 also examines the effects that technology, human relations and trust reparation, amongst other issues, can have on organizations.

Ultimately, academic scholars in management and allied fields will see the Annals as a valuable resource to turn to for comprehensive, up-to-date information, published in a single volume every year by the pre-eminent association for management research.
