Abstract

This book is the Russian language version of our treatise on the Russian Law on Joint Stock Companies, which we participated in drafting. You can download either the entire book at http://ssrn.com/abstract=246670 or one or more of its parts. It contains three parts:

(1) a general overview of the theory (a "self enforcing model of corporate law") behind the law. You can download this part of the book from the download button below.

(2) a detailed section-by-section analysis and critique of the law. You can download this part of the book from http://ssrn.com/abstract=263142

(3) appendices containing the text of the law, a model Russian joint stock company law drafted by Bernard Black and Anna Tarassova, relevant excerpts from the Russian civil Code, and an important judicial interpretation of the law. You can download this part of the book from http://ssrn.com/abstract=263143

Please note: The downloadable book is written in Russian. The English language version is available from Kluwer Law International. Contact sales@kluwerlaw.com
