This casebook teaches the fundamentals of corporate finance. The book begins with a series of cases (involving small companies) that introduce basic finance issues, including rules relating to distributions, use of debt financing for leverage and tax purposes, valuation, and preemptive rights. Subsequent chapters address accounting and valuation and formal legal rules relating to financing the corporation. More concise than ever, the 4th edition newly integrates treatment of securities regulation and M&A throughout rather than in standalone chapters. Materials on preferred stock and debt financing have been condensed, and treatment of executive compensation, derivatives, and off-balance sheet financing has been expanded. Statutory materials are included in the main text, thus eliminating the need for a statutory supplement.
Praise for the previous edition:
"An excellent source for beginning researchers...unbiased...The discussion of the case's significance and its implications will be useful for students..." School Library Journal
Through its interpretations of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, the Supreme Court issues decisions that shape American law, define the functioning of government and society, and address the most important issues of the day. No court in the country can overturn Supreme Court rulings. Famous cases like Roe v. Wade, Plessy v. Ferguson, Dred Scott v. John F.A. Sanford, and Miranda v. Arizona are among the most important decisions made by the court, but many others have also had a profound impact on the American way of life.
Now available in three volumes, Landmark Supreme Court Cases, Second Edition has been extensively revised and updated to feature more than 600 of the most important and influential cases in American history. Intended for U.S. history and political science students, this encyclopedia contains concise, straightforward summaries, analyzing and explaining groundbreaking court cases on such issues as freedom of speech, freedom of the press, civil rights, labor unions, abortion, antitrust and competition, due process, search and seizure, executive privilege, and more. Organized chronologically by issue, each entry includes the case title and legal citation, year of decision, key issue, historical background, legal arguments, decision (majority and dissenting opinions), aftermath and significance, related cases, and recommended reading.
