The legal, regulatory and ethical frameworks guiding governance decisions are highly politicised and subject to intense debate. This book discusses governance theory in relation to corporations, universities and markets. Confronting the challenges of governing these three core areas, Alexander Styhre explores the connections between governance and the production of economic value, shareholder value and economic equality. An in-depth overview of recent governance literature in management studies, economics, legal theory and economic sociology, exposes how governance theory affects securities markets, commodities trade, university ranking and credit scoring cases. The author examines how changes in competitive capitalism and the wider social organization of society are recursively both determined by, and actively shaping the underlying governance ideals and practices. Identifying the difficulties involved in balancing freedom and control in governance policy, he highlights the key concerns confronting governments, regulatory agencies and transnational agencies: how to ensure the efficient use of economic resources to avoid economic inequality without undermining the legitimacy of the current market-based economic model. Essential reading for academics and graduates in management and the social sciences, as well as policy makers and management consultants, The Unfinished Business of Governance gives exceptional insight into the challenges facing governance within free markets.

Unfinished Business is the first book to examine Italian mafia cinema of the past decade. It provides insightful analyses of popular films that sensationalize violence, scapegoat women, or repress the homosexuality of male protagonists. Dana Renga examines these works through the lens of gender and trauma theory to show how the films engage with the process of mourning and healing mafia-related trauma in Italy. Unfinished Business argues that trauma that has yet to be worked through on the national level is displaced onto the characters in the films under consideration. In a mafia context, female characters are sacrificed and non-normative sexual identities are suppressed in order to solidify traditional modes of viewer identification and to assure narrative closure, all so that the image of the nation is left unblemished.

The sixth of eleven children, author Nadine Shelby Schramm was born in Charleston, Arkansas, just as the Great Depression of the 1930s. It was a very different and difficult life. In Unfinished Business, she shares the story of her journey from that small town in Arkansas to becoming a business woman in New York City. In this memoir, she narrates how, as a youngster of ten, she plowed the fields behind two 1,600-pound horses with her blind father at her side. She learned at that early age one can accomplish anything with will power. Despite many challenges she endured in adulthood, including abuse at the hands of her first husband, she started four successful businesses including Budd Leasing, one of the leading theatrical trucking companies in the United States. Unfinished Business shares the lows and the highs of Schramm’s life and the lessons learned throughout. It communicates the message that one can rise above their own self-doubt, make changes, and achieve their life’s dreams.
