In today's globalised business environment, companies face a complex assortment of new and often contradictory laws and regulations. High-profile corporate scandals involving compliance failures teach us that loss of reputation can have a significant, if not fatal, effect on a company. International companies recognise this and invest heavily in systems designed to detect and prevent compliance breaches. However, such systems and controls cannot succeed without the development of a strong compliance culture that secures buy-in from executives, managers, employees, contractors and business partners all at levels. This title offers cutting edge know-how and guidance for the development and management of a sophisticated legal risk management and compliance operation. While identifying risks and regulatory challenges, chapters also explore how professionals can manage processes; implement change; track issues and loss events; screen potential clients, partners, employees and contractors; and implement appropriate remediation. The book features chapters on board structures, tax compliance, fraud and bribery, Sarbanes-Oxley requirements, European capital markets regulation, competition law, data protection, offshoring and the cloud, human resources issues for managers, and managing legal risk in China. Legal Risk Management, Governance and Compliance is a must-have desk reference for in-house corporate counsel and compliance officers, individuals involved in the compliance, audit, legal and risk functions within companies and non-profit organisations, as well as the law firms that service these organisations' needs.

The marketing discipline has been dominated by managerial research that has never really been counterbalanced by a systematic critical analysis which is problematic given the assumed legitimization of the managerialism that has ensued. This book is an attempt to rest the balance, articulating a social critique and evaluation of marketing.
The book offers a critical survey of the most important contributions to managerial marketing discourse from the earliest twentieth century onwards, covering traditions of research such as scientific selling, marketing management and service marketing and drawing from Michel Foucault's understanding of power and Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe's Discourse Theory. The analysis reveals that managerial marketing discourse has promoted a government of organizations that is centred around the customer and that the shifts and turning points in this rationality through time signify more fundamental shifts in emphasis in the type of power promoted by marketing discourse and the subject positions is ascribes to people.
Despite the fact that there are internal auditing books in the market, these existing books are mainly written from the perspective of internal audit practitioners. Unlike books in accounting theory, the books on internal auditing lack empirical attributes. This book aims to bridge this gap in the market by incorporating research perspectives concerning internal auditing as well as new expanding roles in Enterprise Risk Management (ERM). The enhancement of accounting curricular and availability of internal auditing programs in most universities certainly demand more than practitioners' based internal auditing books. This book offers valuable insights based on research perspectives concerning internal auditing and its roles and implications towards the implementation of the ERM. It is specially designed to accommodate the needs of researchers, specifically academic research in internal auditing and ERM. It is packed with key research literature, research questions, directions and theoretical justifications that could facilitate researchers by incorporating existing relevant studies and theories. Moreover, the book could simplify and point researchers in specific directions by integrating detailed literature references, research questions and measurements procedures. Students at both postgraduate and undergraduate levels may find this book extremely useful in assisting them with their research endeavors. The initial part of the book explores the history and evolution of internal auditing as a profession followed by comprehensive theoretical justifications on its relationships with the board. The book offers a list of possible research questions at the end of each chapter that could significantly enhance its value to researchers. Moreover, it has critically analysed various measurement instruments to assess internal audit effectiveness, internal auditors' roles in the ERM and the degree of ERM implementation. The second part of the book focuses more on issues concerning the application of ERM. Indeed, theoretical justifications that could facilitate the development of new hypotheses on various internal auditing and ERM variables using multiple-theoretical approach serves as one of the main contributions of this book. These unique features are hoped to enhance empirical studies in this new area of research.
