Comprising essays specially commissioned for the volume, leading scholars who have shaped the field of corporate law and governance explore and critique developments in this vibrant and expanding area and offer possible directions for future research. This important addition to the Research Handbooks in Law and Economics series provides insights into subjects such as the role of directors, shareholders, creditors and employees; empirical studies of litigation and shareholder activism; executive compensation; corporate gatekeepers; comparative law; and behavioral approaches to law and finance. Topics are organized within five sections: corporate constituencies, insider governance, gatekeepers, jurisdiction, and new theory. Taken as a whole, the volume serves as an introduction for those new to the field and as a reference for those unfamiliar with some of the topics discussed. Authoritative and accessible, the Research Handbook on the Economics of Corporate Law will be a valuable resource for students, scholars, and practitioners of corporate law and economics.

The text as a whole is comprehensive and the analysis is very clear and precise. Readers will find the content interesting, including recent developments in law and economics; this book is a 'must have' for academics and practitioners in law and economics... Each article features a well-written reference that is beneficial to readers particularly when the article refers to a particular theory that is difficult to comprehend in the first instance... this Handbook is clearly presented and well researched. The articles are comprehensive in nature and closely tied to each other. Therefore it is undoubtedly invaluable to academics, researchers and students who are interested in economics and corporate law in the United States as well as comparative law studies. --Jerome Chan, International Company and Commercial Law Review
