In some circles, transparency has become a buzzword as organizations face increasing pressure from institutional shareholders and regulators, banks and other stakeholders needing to monitor financial conditions and managerial decisions more closely to protect their interests. The call for corporate transparency has also intensified for banks since the recent global financial crises and as a result of a series of egregious financial scandals. For this volume we have collected 12 original research papers dealing with various issues relating to transparency. This topic spans many disciplines beyond accounting and finance, intersecting economics, law and management, embracing sociology and political science, and offering opportunities for creative interdisciplinary research. We hope this volume is a useful one-stop reference for students and scholars as well as practitioners and policymakers interested in such work.

Since the global financial crisis of 2008, the call for corporate transparency has only increased. Thus the 12 research papers presented here are truly international, with 17 out of the 23 contributors from outside of the US and UK. Papers can roughly be divided into ownership and taxes, governance and operations, and information for investors, all in relation to transparency. As the desire for transparency enters the public sector, two papers on this subject close out the volume, with one focusing specifically on the situation in Argentina and Chile. Edited by Choi (finance, Temple U.) and Sami (business and economics, Lehigh U.), contributors also come from come from law and international studies. No index is provided.
