Abstract and Keywords

This chapter explores the history of corporate governance and includes an historical perspective on corporate governance. It starts with the emergence of corporate governance during the 1970s in the United States, and then continues to study the developments that occurred sometime during the mid-1970s and the end of the 1990s. It shows that corporate governance has become a subject of debate, and that it has also become well-established as regulatory and academic shorthand. The final section of the chapter surveys the latest developments in corporate governance.

Keywords: historical perspective, corporate governance, shorthand, academic shorthand, United States
