This textbook is an ambitious and engaging introduction to the more advanced writings on company law, primarily designed to allow students to `get under the skin' of the topic and begin to build their critical thinking and analysis skills. Each chapter is structured around key questions and debates that provoke deeper thought and, ultimately, a clearer understanding. The aim of the book is therefore not to present a complete overview of theoretical issues in company law, but rather to illustrate the current debates which are currently going on among those working in shaping the area. The text features summaries of the views of notable experts on key topics and each chapter ends with a list of guided further reading.

1. What is the company and is company law important?.-
2. Are Shareholders the company's owners?Claims in law and claims in ideology.-
3. Should shareholders have power over the company?.-
4. The Board of Directors: effective management or a reflection of social inequality and prejudice?.-
5. Can human rights shape the multinational company?.-
6. Can companies can be moral? And the role of corporate social responsibility.-
7. What the company could be.
