With an emphasis upon ethical considerations, Bagley (business administration, Harvard Business School) covers essential legal topics such as agency, contracts, torts, criminal law, antitrust, as well as employment law, intellectual property, lending transactions, securities regulation, and environmental law.

Each of the 23 chapters contains three to nine examples of law in action, boxed discussion of how the laws apply to cyberspace, and economic, historical, and political perspectives. Annotation c.
