John Wilcox, Chairman Emeritus at Morrow Sodali, is one of the most recognized and respected figures in corporate governance in the world. In his book, The Evolution of Corporate Governance, he provides a real-time picture of how governance evolved over the years through a collection of essays and articles he has written during his distinguished career.
