Editorial Reviews

Global Business Review

The book by Jayati and Subrata Sarkar on governance norms and practices in the Indian context provides insights on some of the unique factors that distinguish the corporate norms of governance in the country…. The book’s contribution in highlighting this critical area and the need for strengthening the implementation phase is commendable A detailed bibliography alongside a section on legalese helps provide clarity to the readers on the finer aspects dealing with ownership disclosures, controls and holding patterns of corporate houses. The book should appeal to those who besides interested in learning about the evolution and development of governance practices in the country desire to know the nuances that constitute the area of corporate governance in the Indian context.
