“An indispensable, authoritative and extremely useful work—a complete guide—that brings all the steps together.” —Joseph Flom of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, New York

The classic in its field! This seven-volume analytical and reference work reflects the current climate for takeover activity and defense.

You'll get expert strategic guidance on improving your negotiating leverage in converting hostile takeovers into friendly deals.
