    Profile Books 2010; US$ 15.98

    Regnery Publishing 2014; US$ 27.95

  • The Art of Hostile Takeover Defenceby Jeannette Gorzala

    Diplomica Verlag 2010; US$ 38.51

    The market for corporate control had been the playfield of bust-up artists and speculators seeking short-time profits during the 1980s.

Until today anti-takeover defence has reached a very sophisticated level and most companies have erected formidable defences to counter... more...
