Review: 'Professor Clarke sets out to cover every aspect of the theory and practice of corporate governance across the world and succeeds in doing so, adding a set of relevant and riveting case studies for good measure. Taking account of the astonishing rapidity of developments in this field internationally, his book represents a remarkable achievement... It will set a benchmark against which to evaluate and measure progress in the field of corporate governance' -- "From the foreword by Sir Adrian Cadbury." 'Professor Clarke has met the significant challenge of offering a substantial overview of the continually changing landscape of corporate governance. Integrating theory and practice, the book's coverage is both comprehensive and authoritative, providing an essential reference point for students, scholars and practitioners' -- "Laura F. Spira, Professor of Corporate Governance, Oxford Brookes University, UK." 'How corporations answer calls by shareholders, stakeholders, and governments to be more responsive to ambient societies has to be a central theme in any leading edge corporate governance text. This book does much better than any other in discussing the full range of issues in corporate governance today and in circling the globe to describe the various governance approaches and devices' -- "Douglas M. Branson, W. Edward Sell Chair in Business Law, University of Pittsburgh, USA."
The authors have synthesized 16 years of geological and geophysical studies which document an 85-km-wide impact crater buried 500 m beneath Chesapeake Bay in south eastern Virginia, USA. In doing so, they have integrated extensive seismic reflection profiling and deep core drilling to analyze the structure, morphology, gravimetrics, sedimentology, petrology, geochemistry, and paleontology of this submarine structure. Of special interest are a detailed comparison with other terrestrial and extraterrestrial craters, as well as a conceptual model and computer simulation of the impact. The extensive illustrations encompass more than 150 line drawings and core photographs. An accompanying CD-ROM includes selected seismic profiles, scaled cross sections, detailed maps, and downhole geophysical logs.

Bill McSweeney addresses the central problem of international relations - security - and constructs a novel framework for its analysis. He argues for the unity of the interpersonal, societal and international levels of human behaviour and outlines a concept of security which more adequately reflects the complexity and ambiguity of the topic. This book introduces an alternative way of theorizing the international order, within which the idea of security takes on a broader range of meaning, inviting a more critical and interpretative approach to understanding the concept and formulating security policy. The recent shift to sociology in international relations theory has not as yet realized its critical potential for the study of security. Drawing on contemporary trends in social theory, Dr McSweeney argues that human agency and moral choice are inherent features of the construction of the social and thus international order, and hence of our conception of security and security policy.
