Book Description

Corporate governance is not just about models of best practice organization or prescriptions following laws or social conventions. Corporate governance is also about persons of power-seeking performance, and they do so in ways that transcend structures and pre-conceived notions of the structural set-up of the business.

This book emphasizes the decision-making dimensions of corporate governance, placing it right in the messy middle of the ever-changing world of capitalism, focussing on the interplay between professional managers and shareholders. This book aims to bring together several fresh perspectives on the development of capitalism seen through the lens of corporate governance. It illustrates the role of intentionality and persons, both as a method with which to understand processes of change, but also as a principle with which to seek a deeper understanding of the corporate governance-choices made.

It will be of interest to researchers, academics, and students in the fields of corporate governance and entrepreneurship, as well as practitioners and other audience interested in the evolution of capitalism and corporate culture.
