The Russian law on joint stock companies, together with the civil code, is the principal law regulating the activities of joint stock companies in Russia today. Author Anna Tarassova was its primary Russian drafter, and authors Black and Kraakman served as advisors during the drafting process. This book aims to present their definitive examination and analysis of Russian company law.;The authors have bolstered their own first-hand perspective with the advice and guidance of practicing attorneys who work with this law on a daily basis.;The book also includes features of particular interest to academics, such as: an explanation of the theoretical structure of the law as a ""self-enforcing"" law; a critique of the new company law, including explication of places where the law complies with the letter of the Civil Code yet reaches results not contemplated by Civil Code drafters; a model company law which corrects errors and oversights in the draft that led to the actual company law and incorporates new ideas that emerged in the legislative process; and also an explanation of the differences between the model and actual law. An index of all references to Civil Code and company law and a subject matter index enhance this work even further as an accessible resource.
