Research Handbook on the Economics of Corporate Law
Posted by Gordon Smith

The Research Handbook on the Economics of Corporate Law, edited by Claire Hill and Brett H. McDonnell, is out! I contributed Chapter 4 on "The role of shareholders in the modern American corporation," and here is a description of the book:

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.

You can read the introduction by Claire and Brett here. The whole volume is highly recommended. Cite it early and often.
