Publisher Description

I. INTRODUCTION In the past decade, two major corporate and financial crises have shaken the foundations of corporate governance in rapid succession. In 2001 and 2002, Enron, WorldCom, and several other major U.S. corporations collapsed after evidence of accounting fraud emerged at each company.
