Overview

The analysis of corporate governance in small and medium-sized firms has been a much-neglected aspect of study in the field of corporate governance. This essential volume provides an authoritative overview of research in this topical field by successfully linking classical papers on corporate governance to the specific aspects in SMEs. The purpose of this volume is not only to provide a review of the literature on governance in SMEs, but also from other social sciences and management perspectives. This collection, with an original introduction by the editors, will be of great interest not only to lecturers and students interested in corporate governance but also to managers and policy makers.
