Summary: The Fourth Edition retains all the features that have made it a distinctive and useful teaching tool for twenty years:
This edition has been fully updated to Spring, 2003, including the Delaware lock-up case, Omnicare, Inc. v. NCS Healthcare. It is more compact to facilitate coverage of all of the basics in as few as three semester hours, while retaining sufficient depth to support four or six hour courses. The main organizational changes from the third edition are condensation of the materials on federal securities regulation and reordering of the materials on business acquisitions.
