This book focuses on the federalization of corporate governance in the United States from both historical and contemporary perspectives. At the outset, it is clear that state corporate law remains vital with respect to the propriety of substantive fiduciary conduct as well as setting forth the relations among and between the corporation, its fiduciaries, its shareholders, and its other stakeholders. Accordingly, the ensuing chapters focus on key aspects of state corporate law to illustrate the continued importance of state company law impacting corporate governance.
