    about how exactly corporate governance should be defined and understood In this important work Marc Moore critically analyses the core dimensions of corporate governance law in these two countries seeking to determine the fundamental nature of corporate governance as a subject of legal enquiry In particular Moore examines whether Anglo American corporate governance is most appropriately understood as an aspect of private facilitative law or as a part of public regulatory law In contrast to the dominant contractarian understanding of the subject which sees corporate governance as an institutional response to investors market driven private preferences this book defines corporate governance as the manifestly public problem of securing the legitimacy and in turn sustainability of discretionary administrative power within large economic organisations It emphasises the central importance of formal accountability norms in legitimating corporate managers continuing possession and exercise of such power and demonstrates the structural necessity of mandatory public regulation in this regard In doing so it highlights the significant and conceptually irreducible role of the regulatory state in determining the key contours of the Anglo American corporate governance framework The normative effect is to extend the state s acceptable policy making role in corporate governance as an essential

    the UK The book focuses on minority shareholder activism in publicly listed companies It argues that contemporary shareholder activism in the UK is dominated by two groups one the institutional shareholders whose shareholder activism is largely seen as a driving force for good corporate governance and two the hedge funds whose shareholder activism is based on value extraction and exit The book provides a detailed examination of both types of shareholder activism and discusses critically the nature of motivations for and consequences following both types of shareholder activism The book then locates both types of shareholder activism in the theory of the company and the fabric of company law and argues that institutional shareholder activism based on exercising a voice at general meetings is well supported in theory and law The call for institutions to engage in more informal forms of activism in the name of stewardship may bring about challenges to the current patterns of activism that institutions engage in The book argues however that a more cautious view of hedge fund activism and the pattern of value extraction and exit should be taken More empirical evidence is likely to be necessary however to weigh up the long terms

    the European Court of Human Rights generating a large and complex body of case law With this book Goss provides an innovative and critical analysis of the European Court s Article 6 case law The category of fair trial rights includes many component rights The existing literature tends to chart the law with respect to each of these component rights one by one This traditional approach is useful but it risks artificially isolating the case law in a series of watertight compartments This book takes a complementary but different approach Instead of analysing the component rights one by one it takes a critical look at the case law through a number of cross cutting problems and themes common to all or many of the component rights For example how does the Court view its role in Article 6 cases When will the Court recognise an implied right in Article 6 How does the Court assess Article 6 infringements and when will the public interest justify an infringement The book s case law driven approach allows Goss to demonstrate that the European Court s criminal fair trial rights jurisprudence is marked by considerable uncertainty inconsistency and incoherence Ryan Goss is Lecturer
