Corporate Boards: Managers of Risk, Sources of Risk deals with the highly timely topic of the Corporate Board and its relationship to risk, both in terms of its management and its creation. The work presents a multi-disciplinary perspective, including contributions from the areas of economics, management, law, finance, business ethics, and corporate social responsibility. Topics include the role of corporate boards in overseeing increasingly complex risk management techniques, managing corporate boards to control the risk that their activities impose on the firm and on society, and the ethical dimensions of corporate board behavior in managing risk and imposing risk on the firm's various stakeholders.
