A heavily researched text especially for advanced students, scholars, and professionals in the field, highly recommended for the economics studies shelves of college libraries. Midwest Book Review While corporate governance in general has received considerable attention from economists in recent years, governance of banks specifically has received relatively little. Yet this is an important area both because banking is a large and important sector and because it is highly regulated so that the stakeholders and directors must share their governance authority with government regulators.
