Submitted on behalf of Tanya R. Saunders, Assistant Provost, International Studies  and William Sheasgreen, Director, Ithaca College London Center.

Dr. Richard Tudway of the Ithaca College London Center has authored a new book, The Looming Corporate Calamity: Restoring Corporate Legitimacy (December 2014. Heterodox Publishing Limited). According to Amazon, UK, Dr. Tudway’s book “is a masterful analysis of the evolution of the limited liability corporation from its 19th Century origins to today’s crisis in the corporate governance of publically traded corporations.” It is recommended reading: “It is a book that needs to be read by all students of business, business leaders and other professionals who seek to understand why public confidence in corporate behavior has reached rock bottom.”

Dr. Tudway has taught at the London Center since the 1980s and is teaching International Business Operations this semester.
