Knights, Raiders, and Targets

The Impact of the Hostile Takeover

Edited by John C. Coffee, Jr., Louis Lowenstein, and Susan Rose-Ackerman

Dramatic as the corporate takeovers of recent years have been, it is far from clear what underlying forces are at work, and what their long-term consequences will be. This book represents one of the first sustained efforts to examine the complex issues surrounding the corporate takeover. Based on papers presented at a symposium sponsored by Columbia Law School's Center for Law and Economic Studies, it airs new theories and offers vital insights into events that have become central to American corporate culture.
