Bibliographic Note

I've recently received via snail mail a catalog from Edward Elgar Publishing, giving titles that deal with a wide variety of legal/regulatory matters. One of their recent publications that might be of special interest to readers of this blog is: CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AND DEVELOPMENT, an anthology edited by Thankom Gopinath Arun, of the University of Central Lancashire and the University of Manchester, and John Turner, Queen's University Management School, Belfast.

The catalog descriubes the book as analyzing "the complex relationship between corporate governance and economic develpment by focusing on the reform of corporate governance, the role of the lagl system, and the interconnections with the financial system."

I'd also like to give a shout-out to two forthcoming books from EE.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE IN MODERN FINANCIAL CAPITALISM, by three authors affiliated with the Stockholm School of Economics, Sweden: Markus Kallifatides, Sophie Nachemsson-Ewall, and Sven-Erik Sjostrand. Available in June 2010.

The authors focus on Old Mutual's takeover of Skandia as a test case of corporate governance.

CONTRACTUAL NETWORKS, INTER-FIRM COOPERATION AND ECONOMIC GROWTH, anothger anthology, edited by Fabrizio Cafaggi, of European University Institute, Italy. Available in September 2010.

Its authors postulate that "collaboration among firms of different sizes constitutes a potential response to numerous weaknesses of modern western industrial systems."
