This well-balanced and well-researched text is a harmonious blend of theoretical concepts and practical aspects on mergers and acquisitions. The book begins with an analysis of the causes of and strategic approaches to M & As.

Finally, the book concludes with a comprehensive coverage of accounting for the legal aspects of and integration in mergers and acquisitions.
