This book attempts to argue the weaknesses of Western governance theories in addressing the ultimate roles and responsibilities of top management in Islamic financial institutions. Governance and accountability from an Islamic perspective aim to assist in interpreting the nature of the key players in discharging their duties and responsibilities accordingly. This book can be used by practitioners (in Islamic financial institutions, Islamic institutions, and corporations), academicians, researchers, and students (undergraduate and postgraduate).
