Long description:
Corporate law and corporate governance have been at the forefront of regulatory activities across the world for several decades now, and are subject to increasing public attention following the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. The Oxford Handbook of Corporate Law and Governance provides the global framework necessary to understand the aims and methods of legal research in this field.

Written by leading scholars from around the world, the Handbook contains a rich variety of chapters that provide a comparative and functional overview of corporate governance. It opens with the central theoretical approaches and methodologies in corporate law scholarship in Part I, before examining core substantive topics in corporate law, including shareholder rights, takeovers and restructuring, and minority rights in Part II. Part III focuses on new challenges in the field,
including conflicts between Western and Asian corporate governance environments, the rise of foreign ownership, and emerging markets. Enforcement issues are covered in Part IV, and Part V takes a broader approach, examining those areas of law and finance that are interwoven with corporate governance, including
insolvency, taxation, and securities law as well as financial regulation.

The Handbook is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary resource placing corporate law and governance in its wider context, and is essential reading for scholars, practitioners, and policymakers in the field.

this volume is a treasure trove for anyone with an interest in corporate law and governance, and it is not possible in a short review to do justice to the many excellent contributions within it. ... academics and students working in the area will find it particularly useful as a module resource ... Equally, practitioners will value the comprehensive picture which is painted and they will learn much from the comparative material indicating how other jurisdictions
manage similar problems. All readers will enjoy these interesting and challenging chapters about the regulation of companies and their role in modern capitalism. The editors are to be congratulated on their outstanding efforts in producing such a compelling volume.
