Summary "The decision of the House of Lords in Salomon v. Salomon & Co. Ltd. has had lasting influence on the development of modern company law. This one hundred year old decision articulated the founding propositions of company law, and is accordingly treated with reverence by academics and practitioners alike. The centenary of the case therefore affords a convenient opportunity to review these developments in company law. In doing so, the contributors to this volume range broadly across the modern approaches to company law and attempt to place key aspects of the subject in a theoretical and historical perspective and to lay bare the structural, theoretical and policy issues which lie behind its day-to-day technicalities."--BOOK JACKET
