Corporate governance is on the reform agenda all over the world. Is the Anglo-American model of shareholder capitalism destined to become the global corporate governance standard or will important differences persist? Well-known scholars address this question with sophisticated political economy analysis geared to the legal frameworks. The Enron scandal has stirred up an urgent round of corporate governance questioning. Will it stop a convergence that was in the works? This volume offers interesting insights into this question.

'Convergence and Persistence in Corporate Governance is impressive in its theoretical and jurisdictional breadth. ... a valuable and high quality snapshot of contemporary corporate governance debate. While recognising economic forces driving convergence, the book provides sophisticated analysis of other constraining forces within a broader regulatory ecosystem. This analysis supports continued diversity in comparative corporate governance.' Sydney Law Review
