‘This fascinating new book by David Milman is highly informative and interesting. Written in a lively and entertaining style, the book contains a wealth of historical detail as well as many topical allusions. It traces how legal and legislative policy in respect of shares and share capital has waxed and waned over the years and how previously discarded solutions have once again gained in popularity. The book comes highly recommended for its sheer readability and incisive analysis.’
– Gerard McCormack, University of Leeds, UK.
‘Professor Milman provides a must-read work of immense scholarship on shares. The book is a modern and thorough exposition of the development of shares as a critical intangible asset. A comparative approach enhances the analysis of the work. This book is clear, comprehensive and a must-read for students, academics, and practitioners who seek a work of scholarship.’
