Deep and detailed research into the workings of corporate enables Professor Herman to throw considerable light on how the board of directors operates, how important outside directors are, how new members are selected, and how multiple directorships interlock the large corporations. Changes in corporate governance haves not changed the basic objectives of the corporation -- the pursuit of growth and profits -- nor have they enhanced social responsibility.
