"This book provides an excellent sampler of corporate governance reforms in the Southeast Asian countries, reaching similar conclusions for each country. Most writers agree that it is not that the regulations and laws do not offer good guidance on corporate governance in Southeast Asia, but that the business infrastructure does not provide a supportive environment for implementing these rules. For example, a patriarchal culture, which embraces respect at all costs for one's seniors, has to some degree inhibited the punishment mechanism and prevent fair competition. Further, corruption and bribery have become the plague of Asian financial markets. All these issues pose challenges for Southeast Asian financial market participants in practising good corporate governance" (Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies).

"Overall, the contributors examine not only the specific measures adopted by the Southeast Asian nations, but also the social, economic, and political dimensions of corporate governance reforms in those countries. Several of the studies are carried out from a regional or global perspective. Considering that the literature on comparative corporate governance on Southeast Asian countries is extremely limited, the value of this book is obvious" (Asian Journal of Comparative Law).
