In this accessible and insightful book David Milman examines the phenomenon of the company share in an holistic way, tracing the origins of the share and describing the diversity present within the family of shares. Using a comparative approach, key chapters consider the circumstances under which shares are acquired, the property law perspective relevant to shares and the rights and obligations of those who hold shares. The book concludes with some speculation on how the share might evolve in the future in the light of technological change and the development of other capital raising investments.
