An insightful overview of the political, legal and social perspectives which inform corporate governance in China, this book examines the challenges of corporate governance faced by Chinese corporations and international corporations operating in China.

Unlike other texts that tend to focus solely on the board of directors and the takeover market, Yu has enlarged the scope of this study to cover both market forces and contractual mechanisms, providing readers with an extended and comprehensive discussion of the pertinent issues.

It explores a range of issues and their role in corporate governance models, including:

  • executive compensation
  • takeover markets
  • the securities market
  • insolvency issues
  • venture capital market

Examining the current climate and making the case that comparative corporate governance studies have significant policy implications for China’s transitional economy, Yu has put together a book that is a valuable resource for students and those working in Asian business, corporate governance and commercial law.
