Supported with learning features, the core principles and doctrines are fully explained and explored, and consistently linked with fascinating, lively examples of the law in action. While focused fully on discussing law and legal issues, the book also responds to modern critiques of corporate regulation by linking the legal issues to debates around corporate governance .
