This book marks the 24th entry in the Global Issues series of books designed to introduce international, transnational and comparative law issues into traditionally domestic law school courses. It begins with an overview of the globalization of securities markets and the policy issues this phenomenon raises for securities regulation. Following this, the book explores differences in national approaches to the substance of securities regulation, both with regard to mandatory disclosure obligations and with regard to insider trading, and looks at the enforcement of securities laws---first looking at comparative approaches to government enforcement, next at the topic of how enforcement agencies in different nations cooperate with each other, and finally a comparative look at different approaches to the highly controversial topic of private enforcement of securities laws. This leads to a look at the reach of United States securities laws to transactions taking place abroad. Finally, the book closes with an examination of emerging securities markets and what lessons nations with such markets can draw from the experience of nations with developed markets.

This book provides an overview of constitutional issues that arise when searches, seizures, and interrogations occur outside the United States.

Cases such as Verdugo-Urquidez and Alvarez-Machain are included, along with sections on electronic surveillance and the reach of the Fifth Amendment and Due Process Clause abroad, plus materials on torture and extraordinary renditions. There is also a short discussion of indefinite detention in places like Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan, and in other sites.

This book is designed primarily to serve as a supplement allowing professors teaching corporate law courses in law schools in the United States to introduce their students to corporate laws outside of the United States. By doing so, this book seeks to familiarize students with laws governing the foreign companies US attorneys may increasingly need to deal with in a global economy, to clarify United States corporate law by examining how other systems address the same concerns, to challenge students’ unquestioning assumption that the law du jour in the United States is, by definition, the best law, and to predict the direction of United States corporate law in the future given our history of borrowing from foreign corporate laws in the past. Subjects covered include taxonomy of business forms, choice of corporate law, creditor protection, corporate governance, mismanagement, insider trading, and takeovers.
