The first edition of this book was published in 2007. The aim of the book was to provide the reader with a basic understanding of the German corporate governance system. It offered an overview of German corporate law and also provided an interrelationship among various organs required for German public organisations. It focused on the German system of codetermination and the dominant role played by German banks in controlling some of the company organs of large organisations. The preface stated that the book provided a comprehensive and in-depth discussion of German corporate law and the German corporate governance system in English, and that it would assist non-German readers in obtaining a better understanding of German corporate law and German corporate governance.
