The most comprehensive and interdisciplinary anthology of corporate law material available, this reader reflects the enormous changes that have occurred in business organization and legal scholarship since the hostile takeover was introduced in the 1980s. New and revised topics include capital markets, agency theory, behavioral economics, state competition for corporate charters, boards of directors, shareholder voting rights, executive compensation, activist investors, takeovers, securities regulation and comparative corporate governance. The Foundations of Law Series offers a collection of comprehensive readings that provide an interdisciplinary perspective on a substantive legal field. Edited by scholars who have made important contributions, the readings are designed to provide an accessible introduction to the leading scholarship in a field. Accompanying notes and questions permit students to engage fully in the literature on their own, as well as to aid their understanding of material covered in classes.
