Anna Beckers is Assistant Professor of Private Law and Legal Methodology at Maastricht University.
In undertaking a comparative analysis of Germany and England, the book is relevant to the civil and common law legal systems represented by the two jurisdictions. It is well expressed in a language that is accessible to non-specialist readers. Scholars and practitioners in the CSR, corporate governance, business ethics and globalisation fields will certainly find the book useful. -- Onyeka Osuji * Journal of Business Law *
