This is a new study that examines the phenomenon of cross-border incorporations and the conduct of business in more than one jurisdiction. It is a compilation of essays by academics and practitioners in the field who trace the development of the subject, and provide an account of economics, legal history and private international law. It demonstrates its relationship with finance and security issues as well as the importance of business rescue, and how new international instruments function, as well as how this area is being challenged by other areas of law.
