This book is designed to be an easy to access reference guide for
corporate counsel as well as outside counsel dealing w ith corporate
law. The book is an abridged version of our four-volume treatise on
corporate law—James D. Cox & Thomas Lee Hazen, Tr eati se o n th e
Law of Corporations (3rd ed. West 2010).
We have kept references to a minimum in order to promote read-
ability without sacrif icing reference to helpful primary sources. O ur
hope is that this book will provide a useful overview and explana-
tion of key concepts. The complexity of the f ield of corporate law
precludes comprehensive treatment within a readable one-volume
book so we have focused on breadth and understa nding rather than
depth. Once you have gained a basic understanding of the subject
from this book , you might want to consult a more comprehensive
source such as our four-volume treatise published by West.
We hop e th at you wil l fi nd th is bo ok us efu l. We we lcome your c om-
ments or suggestions for improvement.
