After introducing the corporate concept and briefly tracing the evolution and growth of Joint Stock Enterprise in India and abroad, the book sketches the Corporate Models - the traditional and the modern. In this outstanding and unique book the learned author discusses in details the philosophy of the Companies Act since 1913 .The author has painstakingly traced the philosophy of the companies Act, 1956 and has substantiated the continuance of the same in the subsequent Amendments in the Act, with the help of official pronouncements and the Parliamentary Debates. The book also analyses the wide gap between the Companies Act, 1956 as a “Law in the book” and as a Law in action”, in respect of protection of shareholders and the prevention of concentration of economic power.
The book is, perhaps, the first attempt of its kind. The language of the book is of high standard and the presentation is literary.The book will be of great use to the teachers, scholars, students, lawyers and the general readers.
