About the eBook

Wang Jiang Yu approaches corporate law from a development and political economic perspective, while also giving a detailed analysis of what the law is. Better analyses of US corporate law have studied agency problems and strategically viable responses within the firm, while good studies of EU company law have also factored in questions of harmonization and regulatory arbitrage among jurisdictions. Wang provides us with what might become the leading paradigm for studies on Chinese corporate law: an understanding of how Western corporation forms have been employed and adjusted in China to meet the development agenda of the Chinese government and how this law is evolving in response to the state of the Chinese economy and the periodically adjusted positions of government planners'

This accessible book offers a comprehensive and critical introduction to the law on business organizations in the People's Republic of China. The coverage focuses on the 2005-adopted PRC Company Law and the most recent legislative and regulatory developments in the company law landscape in China. The book covers a wide range of topics including the definitions of companies as compared with other forms of business organizations, incorporation, shareholders rights and legal remedies, corporate governance (including the fiduciary and other duties and liabilities of directors, supervisors and managers), corporate finance (including capital and shares offering), fundamental corporate changes (including mergers & acquisitions, and takeovers), and corporate liquidation and bankruptcy. In addition to presenting strong doctrinal analysis, the author also considers China's unique social, political and economic contexts.
