Product Details

Every Medal of Honor represents a story of gallantry, courage, and sacrifice. Conceived in the early 1860s, the Medal of Honor, awarded “in the name of the Congress of the United States,” has been presented to more than 3,000 members of the United States armed forces. Seven of the 464 Medals of Honor awarded during World War II went to Texas Aggies. Author James R. Woodall, a 1950 graduate of Texas A&M University and a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War, carried out a dedicated search of archives, family collections, and scores of other resources to gather, for the first time, the complete stories of these seven courageous men. Texas Aggie Medals of Honor will undoubtedly be of great interest to former students of Texas A&M University, members of the Corps of Cadets, and others associated with the university and its distinguished tradition of military training and service. But the book will also hold great appeal, in the words of one advance reader, “to those interested in the nation’s highest award for valor and the individual stories of ordinary men who did extraordinary things when confronted by life-threatening situations in combat.” ” . . . a fast moving narrative of short, thoughtful portraits of the lives of seven World War II Texas Aggie Medal of Honor recipients. . . has meaning for readers both inside and outside the Texas Aggie Nation, and they will certainly grasp Woodall’s admiration for these seven men and appreciate his tenacious research into their histories.”-Southwestern Historical Quarterly The Geography of Finance tackles crucial issues regarding the emerging global market for corporate governance. The authors describe and explain the transformation of European corporate governance in the light of the imperatives driving global financial markets, using an innovative analyticalframework. The authors chart the response of corporate managers to the interest of global portfolio managers in transparent and accountable modes of corporate governance. In doing so, the authors provide an innovative perspective on a rapidly changing environment; and a challenge to those who ignore thegathering momentum of global financial markets.

‘This fine book sheds new light on the interaction of dynamic financial markets and the structures of corporate governance. The authors take us far beyond conventional treatments of institutional convergence and divergence. Their broadly interdisciplinary approach yields compelling arguments,innovative empirical tests, and appropriately nuanced conclusions. The Geography of Finance will certainly engage a wide range of expert readers, but students and non-specialists interested in the future of global capitalism will find it accessible as well.’Louis W. Pauly, Canada Research Chair in Globalization and Governance and Director of the Centre for International Studies, University of Toronto
