The New Corporate Governance in Theory and Practice offers an interdisciplinary analysis of the emerging board-centered system of corporate governance. It draws on doctrinal legal analysis, behavioral economic insights into how individuals and groups make decisions, the work of new institutional economics on organizational structure, and management studies of corporate governance. Using those tools, Stephen Bainbridge traces the process by which this new corporate governance system emerged, and explores whether such changes are desirable or effective.

Boards, Governance and Value Creation: The Human Side of Corporate Governance

What is the role of boards in corporate governance? How should they be structured in order to maximize value creation? This book looks at the role of boards in a variety of different countries and contexts, from small and medium-sized enterprises to large corporations. It explores the working style of boards and how they can best achieve their task expectations. Board effectiveness and value creation are shown to be the results of interactions between owners, managers, board members and other actors. Board behaviour is thus seen to be a result of strategizing, norms, board leadership, and the decision-making culture within the boardroom. Combining value creation, behavioural and ethical approaches to the study of boards, this work offers a systematic framework which will be of value to graduate students and researchers in the field of corporate social responsibility and business ethics.

Adapting to climate change is a critical problem facing humanity. This involves reconsidering our lifestyles, and is linked to our actions as individuals, societies and governments. This book presents the latest science and social science research on whether the world can adapt to climate change. Written by experts, both academics and practitioners, it examines the risks to ecosystems, demonstrating how values, culture and the constraining forces of governance act as barriers to action.

Chaos and Governance in the Modern World System
University of Minnesota Press | 1999-05 | ISBN : 0816631522 | Pages : 320 | PDF | 65.7 MB

The underlying theoretical canvas of the book makes sense. It gives a historical and scientific look on the mechanics of globalisation. The book is of course academic in nature, which doesn't always help readability, when having to navigate through references and footnotes. It is only in the conclusions that a more linear tone is taken. Next step for me, exploring some books on the future hegemon: China?
