  • Description: Using 11 pivotal cases that have shaped the evolution of corporate law, internationally renowned scholars explore the people behind the disputes and the forces that led the judges to decide the cases the way they did. From Meinhard v. Salmon to Paramount v. QVC, they unravel the logic (and, often, apparent illogic) of the opinions. Simultaneously amusing and clarifying, the resulting chapters make sense of cases that have puzzled students and scholars for decades.
