Global in scope and written by leading scholars in the field, the Research Handbook on Mergers and Acquisitions is a modern-day survey providing cutting edge analysis of the state of M&A using history, theory, and empirical work, and also providing a theoretical framework for future research and development in the field. Its chapters explore the history of mergers and acquisitions, considering the theory behind the structure of modern transaction documentation. The authors also address other key M&A issues, such as takeover defenses; judges and practitioners' perspectives on litigation; the appraisal remedy and other aspects of Federal and state law, as well as M&A considerations in the structure of start-ups. The book's coverage is novel as well as broad, broaching comparative issues and shareholder activism in addition to more traditional areas. This Research Handbook will be an invaluable resource for scholars, practitioners, judges and legislators

'In this book, a group of eminent scholars bring takeovers back to the forefront of corporate governance debate. The book examines M&A from a range of perspectives -- historical, economic, legal, transactional and comparative. It pays particular attention to how legal doctrine affects M&A deals in the real world, and assesses the impact of contemporary developments, such as the rise of shareholder activism. Highly recommended for all those interested in corporate governance generally, and M&A in particular.' --Jennifer Hill, The University of Sydney, Australia
