Modern Company Law for a Competitive South African Economy presents a progressive discussion of selected corporate law matters brought about by the new Companies Act 71 of 2008.   The book covers the areas of corporate formation and corporate finance, corporate governance and mergers and takeovers, business rescue, and the enforcement and regulatory regime. This publication is almost certainly the first attempt to grapple rigorously with selected aspects of corporate law contained in the new Companies Act.
