Industry Reviews

`Vanessa Edward's book ... surveys the present situation and the perspectives of European company law in a successful and very informative way.' Prof. Dr. Mathias Habersack, European Business Organisation Law Review, 1:157-163, 2000. `the book offers a successful introduction into European company law.' Prof. Dr. Mathias Habersack, European Business Organisation Law Review, 1:157-163, 2000. `the book lives up to the standards set by the author and the editor.' Prof. Dr. Mathias Habersack, European Business Organisation Law Review, 1:157-163, 2000. `This book has many admirable features. The author clearly has an impressive knowledge and understanding of a large subject but she wears her learning lightly. As a result, the book is both a gold mine of useful information and a pleasure to read. The tone is confident, clear and authoritative. Ample footnotes evidence extensive reading in UK and foreign sources ... This is a stimulating and useful book and it deserves a wide audience.' Eilis Ferran, Cambridge Law Journal 1999 `Reading her account makes one wonder what the extent is of the damage done by the UK to the internal financial market.' Mads Andenas, The International Journal of Banking Reg, September 1999
