A multipurpose text that can be used in any class with a focus on comparative legal systems for corporations. This book contains cases, statutes, analysis and readings, the majority of which are from jurisdictions outside the US. It also has extensive notes and questions. The focus is primarily on the US, UK, major European continental civil law systems (France, Germany, Italy) and European Union law, and Japan; with references to other jurisdictions such as China, India and Brazil. In addition to law schools, the book may also appeal to non-law school professors of business administration, economics, and political science.
