Abstract

Morten Huse's new book brings together his years of studies and commentary on the function of corporate boards. Perhaps its most provocative contents are studies relating to Norway's requirement that public- and private-sector corporate boards include at least 40% women. The generally salutary results he reports support arguments that greater board diversity can have a prophylactic effect against corporate fraud, profligacy and other harmful behaviors. This book review focuses on Huse's included studies of women serving as directors.
