The book describes in detail the mechanisms of corporate control. However, it considers corporate governance from the perspective of shareholder activism. It seeks to show how shareholders can influence corporations and examines specific instruments of corporate control such as shareholder proposals and proxy contests in detail. Binding and non-binding codes of conduct are also explored. Lastly, the book discusses avenues of corporate control such as insider trading and merger tactics including greenmail. It can serve either as a specialized text for practitioners and academics or as a unique introduction to corporate law for students.
