Summary The main aim with this book is to provide English speaking readers with a comprehensive overview of the German corporate governance model. The authors introduce the reader to the unique features of the German Business and Enterprise Law. The book deals with the most important company organs, namely the General Meeting, the Management Board and the Supervisory Board. The unique interplay among these organs are also covered and the reader is introduced to the particular dynamics of the German two-tier board structure.Further the authors deal with the dominant role of the "German banks" and new players in the German financial markets, focusing particularly on voting rights of these institutions at companies' general meetings and appointing members to companies' supervisory boards. Accounting is shown as the documentary proof of good corporate governance. The final chapter gives an overview of corporate governance in the European Union, the OECD Principles of Corporate Governance and corporate governance in the US, the UK and Australia.
