Summary/Abstract "This volume collects recent scholarship on the law of corporate governance. It explores the application of legal doctrine and theory to policy issues such as corporate social responsibility, executive compensation, corporate criminality, federalism, and ethics. Corporate Governance: Law, Theory and Policy puts these issues in the context of recent developments such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the wave of corporate scandals and failures exemplified by the failure of Enron Corporation."--BOOK JACKET
