Here is a taste of what people are saying about the book:

‘This book makes an important contribution in deepening our understanding of how corporate governance continues to evolve across the world and why it matters. Much of the existing corporate governance work has focused on the Anglo-Saxon world. This book, in contrast, fills a significant void by providing a unique look inside the governance norms and practices of firms based in emerging markets as well as family owned businesses.’

Sandeep Dahiya, Georgetown University, USA

‘Addressing the post-crisis reality, the book opens a new chapter on understanding the role of corporate governance, identifying its main inefficiencies and laying out directions for further development. Nine inspiring contributions delivered by an international team of authors based in the US, Europe, Asia and Australia picture the transforming governance with respect both to theoretical conceptualization as well as corporate practice.’

Tomasz Szapiro, Rector of the SGH Warsaw School of Economics, Poland

Transforming Governance is not just another book discussing corporate governance. We already have too many of these! This incisive and well written work consisting of a number of chapters by experts who in the main have practical knowledge of what they address, under the editorship of Professors Maria Aluchna and Güler Aras succeeds in raising and developing issues which are timely and significant – particularly for those at the helm of governance. The book within admittedly a critical theoretical framework tests the fitness of past approaches to the promotion of good governance and advocates a more inclusive and ethical approach. The obligation on those who mind other people’s wealth to ensure effective implementation is a theme that runs through the discussion of governance as it is conceived and applied in a number of key Eastern European countries, including Turkey. Managements and those who advise them, including those in the academy, will find the multifaceted and multi-disciplined discussion of real and pertinent issues invaluable in discharging their own duties.’

Barry Rider OBE, Centre of Development Studies, University of Cambridge, UK
