Book description

Corporate governance in Asia continues to attract global interest due to its critical importance to the world's fastest-growing region. The study of governance systems remains complicated by Asia's mix of legal traditions, market systems and social history. This comprehensive textbook provides a comparative overview of the corporate governance framework, theory and practice in major Asian countries. Students at all levels will gain an understanding of corporate governance systems in Asia and how they compare with models attributed to the US, the UK and Europe. Featuring six foundational chapters focusing on general theory and corporate governance systems and eight country-specific chapters, this book can be used as the basic textbook for a general course on comparative corporate governance or as an essential reference about corporate governance in Asia for a wide variety of professionals including academics, jurists, students, practitioners, investors, creditors, policymakers and analysts.


'Over the past quarter century, corporate governance has emerged as a leading policy issue and a major field of academic inquiry. Corporate governance reform continues apace around the world - nowhere with more fervor than in Asia. Corporate Governance in Asia: A Comparative Approach provides a comprehensive introduction to Asia’s widely varying corporate governance systems, informed by theory and analysis developed over time in global scholarly debates.'

Curtis J. Milhaupt - Stanford University Law School, California

'This book is remarkable for three reasons: first, it gives a highly informative introduction to the corporate governance practice in eight Asian countries (Australia, Hong Kong, India, Singapore, China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan). Second, it is an excellent textbook for students and professors. Third, it puts the experiences of these countries into the perspective of general corporate governance theory and shows that, while both, the US and UK models and the German and European models, have had their impact, corporate governance in Asia is multifaceted. A book to be read.'

Klaus J. Hopt - Max-Planck-Institute for Comparative and International Private Law, Germany
