520    "It can be difficult for students of comparative company 
       law both to understand the internationally relative nature
       of a legal system and grasp it in practical detail. This 
       book is designed to address that problem. Each chapter 
       begins with a discursive analysis of the laws in Germany, 
       the UK and the USA, framed by a comparative presentation. 
       Chapters also contain edited judicial decisions from at 
       least two of the jurisdictions, which allow readers to 
       perform their own comparisons in more detail and leave 
       room for original analysis and discussion"--|cProvided by
