To dispel the haunting question "What is the nature and rationale of corporate law?", one should read this book. For corporate laws arround the world (six developed countries: France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK, and the US), this book reveals their natures, justifies their existence and identifies contemporary thinkings surrounding them. Although not a legal guy, i found this book quite easy to read, probably because of its close tie to corporate finance.
