Editorial Reviews

Booknews
New edition of a text that provides a broad and detailed understanding of how law impacts daily management decisions and business strategies. 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. He also addresses current concerns in business regulation such as consumer privacy and the Internet, the World Trade Organization, copyright law in cyberspace, mandatory arbitration of employment disputes, employer liability for sexual harassment, selective disclosure of inside information to securities analysts, and the creation, sale, and patentability of genetically modified organisms. 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.
