Book Summary:

Why does corporate governance--front page news with the collapse of Enron, WorldCom, and Parmalat--vary so dramatically around the world? This book explains how politics shapes corporate governance--how managers, shareholders, and workers jockey for advantage in setting the rules by which companies are run, and for whom they are run. It combines a clear theoretical model on this political interaction, with statistical evidence from thirty-nine countries of Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America and detailed narratives of country cases. This book differs sharply from most treatments by explaining differences in minority shareholder protections and ownership concentration among countries in terms of the interaction of economic preferences and political institutions. It explores in particular the crucial role of pension plans and financial intermediaries in shaping political preferences for different rules of corporate governance. The countries examined sort into two distinct groups: diffuse shareholding by external investors who pick a board that monitors the managers, and concentrated blockholding by insiders who monitor managers directly. Examining the political coalitions that form among or across management, owners, and workers, the authors find that certain coalitions encourage policies that promote diffuse shareholding, while other coalitions yield blockholding-oriented policies. Political institutions influence the probability of one coalition defeating another.

Book Summary:

This detailed analysis examines the structure of Republican committee membership in the U.S. House of Representatives between 1980 and 1995. Douglas Koopman's account of the House Republicans' rise to majority status describes the strategies adopted by the Republican minority to oppose the majority's legislative efforts. The author explains how their actions as a minority provide insight into the current and future Republican policy agenda. Delineating the motives of the House Republican leadership and their varying degrees of party loyalty, Hostile Takeover astutely explains that by transforming their resistance to Democratic initiatives into aggressive assaults on the entire majority agenda, House Republicans positioned themselves to take power after the watershed 1994 elections and to define a new range of legitimate political discourse.
