As companies become bigger and more powerful, the need to oversee them grows ever, and ever more difficult to achieve... From the author of Just Reward?, this is a cutting-edge analysis of corporate governance, and the way that company directors' accountability is moving into new realms. Polly Peck, Robert Maxwell, BCCI.... There are many examples of abuse of power in large corporations and the damage this can cause. Recent developments in the field of corporate governance have made significant progress in highlighting the importance of these issues, but we are still a very long way from a workable system which can truly protect the interests of the innocent, without hampering high performance by companies. Anthony Williams shows how we can take things forward. The book includes a review of the way in which directors are currently regulated, and explains how the systems already in place can be modified to provide the protection we need.
