Commentaries and Cases on the Law of Business Organization

Commentaries and Cases on the Law of Business Organization Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This highly accessible casebook retains the features that made it successful. The authors

- draw upon the experiences of William Allen, former Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery, to add a unique real-world perspective to the book

- employ a logical and flexible organization that allows chapters to be taught out of order to accommodate alternative teaching approaches

- use clear and concisely written introductions and transitional text to provide context and perspective

- facilitate teaching and understanding through rich commentary in the form of explanatory notes

- draw upon both classic and important recent cases and select and edit them to maximum effect

- use the economic analysis perspective, presented through clear and consistent explanatory text, as a coherent theme for the course and a useful analytic tool for evaluating business models

- draw upon examples, hypos, and diagrams to illustrate conceptual and theoretical models

- provide a Teacher's Manual that includes detailed guidance for structuring the course, case analyses, and answers to questions raised in the book. Additional PowerPoint slides provide case summaries and raise cutting-edge and interesting points

The Second Edition has been updated throughout, and it

- provides more connections to the recent empirical literature on various topics

- includes additional problems as well as recent cases, such as Disney and Omnicare

- introduces a new feature: Sidebars that provide brief biographies or additional facts that add color to the cases being examined (e.g., biographies of Eldbridge Gerry, Frank Lorenzo, and Sumner Redstone, and an exploration of the business motivesbehind Timberland's philanthropic program)

Book News Annotation:

This reference will help students and non-specialist lawyers understand the basic principles of law that affect the way business is conducted in the US. Although the book's approach is informed by basic principles of economics, readers do not need formal training or understanding of economics. Allen (law and business, New York University) first deals with fundamentals of organizational law in a business setting, covering agency law, partnership and corporate forms and their variants, and basic concepts of valuation. The rest of the book addresses the legal regulation of a variety of actions, decisions, and transactions that involve the modern public corporation. These chapters cover the voting system, the duty of care, and particular classes of corporate actions and related shareholder transactions that are subject to more specialized regulation by corporate law. Cross-references and extensive text notes are included. This second edition covers developments in corporate law since 2003, and provides citations to the literature on corporate law issues. New sidebars offer real-life illustrations of topics. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
