Overview

Praise for Corporate Governance Post-Sarbanes-Oxley

"This is an intelligent and well-organized text to governance issues raised in the post-Sarbanes-Oxley era. It is informative and easily approachable and will be of value to both the academic and professional community."
—Charles Elson, Director of the Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance at the University of Delaware

"Conflicts of interests and weak internal controls have surfaced as a continuing theme in recent corporate scandals where the independence of auditors and other gatekeepers was either completely lacking or significantly compromised. Dr. Rezaee's book makes a meaningful contribution that will assist the investing public in developing a better understanding of the importance of corporate governance, both now and in the future."
—Cynthia L. Richson, President, Richson Consulting Group, LLC, and former director of Corporate Governance and attorney for the State of Wisconsin Investment Board

"Corporate Governance Post-Sarbanes-Oxley offers one of the most comprehensive examinations available. Dr. Rezaee achieves an in-depth, thorough review of today's corporate governance landscape and provides a sound perspective for the reader. His systematic description offers a practical guide for any investor interested in the role of governance within the capital markets. An excellent book."
—Michael McCauley, Director of Corporate Governance, Florida State Board of Administration (SBA)

Today's corporate boards are in afishbowl of scrutiny...

Corporate governance is the most influential theme of the twenty-first century, having been transformed from a compliance requirement to a strategic business imperative integrated into the corporate culture. With media focus on the Enrons and WorldComs of the business world, the heat is on the corporate board to get on board with the SOX Act and invigorate its profile to its shareholders.

Valuable for large or small corporate boards, Corporate Governance Post-Sarbanes-Oxley presents proactive methods for SOX implementation and contains best-practice tips, checklists, and case studies useful for equipping your corporate board toward a higher quality of control.

This complete guide will reinforce your company's financial structure and reputation and show board directors, CEOs, CFOs, and audit committee members how to leverage the power and value of SOX requirements to move their corporate boards toward a higher quality of governance.
