'We seem to be living in particularly turbulent times. Environmental issues, sustainability, corporate social responsibility and corporate fraud raise major challenges for economic stability at the macro level and for governance and financial investors at the firm level. These challenges are worldwide and relate to the huge variety of firms from the largest corporations to micro-enterprises. Sabri Boubaker, Douglas Cumming, and Duc Khuong Nguyen have put together a timely and highly insightful collection that provides an excellent resource for researchers, policymakers and even the informed general reader on these important topics.'
