This book is designed for law students taking an advanced business law course such as Mergers & Acquisitions or Corporate Finance, with a primary emphasis on corporate and securities law issues. While the text has a strong emphasis on the doctrinal issues taught in today's M&A classes, it also places significant emphasis on providing an economic analysis of the major issues in that course. The text thus offers not only with an overview of the black letter law, but also a unifying method of thinking about the subject.

"Buying and selling a business is a challenging process. It involves rituals and interactions that are sometimes eerily similar to the courtship dynamic between a human couple. While many business courtships end in an economic marriage, plenty of others fail and for a variety of reasons. Many unsuccessful business negotiations could have made sense, but ultimately floundered, because negotiations went badly awry at some crucial point. CCH's brand-new Practical Guide to Mergers, Acquisitions and Business Sales by seasoned business transaction attorney and author, Joseph B. Darby III, J.D., not only explains the tax aspects of buying and selling a business, but examines the special art of closing major business transactions successfully through an understanding of the tax consequences of the deal. ; There also are two other parties with a major economic stake in a business merger, acquisition or sale: the federal government and (usually at least one) state government. The role of a tax adviser on an business acquisition transaction is to make everyone aware that there are two "silent partners" in the room at all times and that the Buyer and Seller have a common interest in cutting the silent partners out of the deal or reducing their take. The purpose and mission of Practical Guide to Mergers, Acquisitions and Business Sales is to teach practitioners and business stakeholders how to pare the tax costs of transactions to the absolute minimum, within the boundaries of ethical and appropriate tax reporting."--Publisher's website.

Few topics of scientific enquiry have attracted more attention in the last decade than the origin and evolution of language. Few have offered an equivalent intellectual challenge for interdisciplinary collaborations between linguistics, cognitive science, prehistoric archaeology, palaeoanthropology, genetics, neurophysiology, computer science and robotics. The contributions presented in this volume reflect the multiplicity of interests and research strategy used to tackle this complex issue, summarize new relevant data and emerging theories, provide an updated view of this interdisciplinary venture, and, when possible, seek a future in this broad field of study.
