Much discussion on corporate governance assumes companies are owned and controlled separately, yet this is not the norm worldwide. This book explores the foundations of separation in UK companies, asking how the widely held company came to prominence and why and how the UK stock market came to be dominated by institutional shareholders.

Leslie Hannah, Business History Review This fine survey is a definitive contribution to British business and legal history, but it can also be recommended to anyone trying to understand long-run developments in financial markets and corporate governance elsewhere.
Morgen Witzel, Financial Times Its ideas are too important to be limited to universities and libraries. And, although the focus is on Britain, it has relevance for other economies, not least the US.
Dr Saleem Sheikh, International Company and Commercial Law Review, Issue 10, 2009 Cheffin's book is an excellent contribution to the missing debate and literature in the United Kingdom on why the separation of ownership from control occured in the United Kingdom. It provides credible reasons with empirical data to support the findings. there are some useful charts and data by way of support. This book is highly recommended and should be on all bookshelves.
Professor Stephen Girvin, The Journal of Business Law, Issue 7, 2009 A fascinating analytical investigation of a pervasive feature of modern British companies...for those seeking an understanding of how British companies have developed and of the underlying reasons for the governance of British companies, in their historical and economic context, there can be no better place to start than with this book. It has been meticulously and scrupulously researched and is elegantly and engagingly written...Professor Cheffin's book embodies the
very best features of academic scholarship and deserves to be widely read and consulted. It comes with this reviewer's strongest endorsement.
Robin Pearson, University of Hull, Business Archives: Sources and History, No 99 Business historians, economists and, I am sure, a much wider readership will turn repeatedly to this volume for a substantive account of the ownership of British business over the past two centuries
Graeme Wines, Accounting History 15.133 The author states that the book 'offers numerous insights for those interested in comparative corporate governance, for those engaged in the study of British business and economic history and for those intrigued by the relationship between law and markets' (p.24). There is no doubt that the book succeeds in doing this and in doing it exceedingly well.
Dionysia Katelouzou, Phd, University of Cambridge, Cambridge Student Law Review The book offers various insights for advanced students and researchers interested in British business and economic history. And, although it focuses on Britain, the book is a mine of insightful information for those seeking an improved understanding of comparative corporate governance.
Ron Weir, University of York, Economic History Review 62.4 ...[This book] display[s] an impressive commitment to a multi-disciplinary approach which embraces law, financial economics, and politics, plus frequent checks on empirical evidence, when available.
