Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Review from previous edition
"This is a highly accessible book. ... One of the distinguishing features of this text is that it contains not only a readable and sometimes humorous explanation of the common law and statutues but also addresses corporate theory. The authors deal with some complex topics in a comprehensible fashion. ... The narrative leads to both an understanding of the topic under discussion and also the realisation that company law cannot be compartmentalised into clear-cut topics that can be studied in isolation. ... This text...stands out for its clarity, whilst still demonstrating the depth of study needed in relation to some of the more complex areas of company law."--Journal of Business Law
