This casebook concentrates on the particular legal issues that arise from the growing practice area of emerging markets. It prepares the student for the special problems encountered when working in countries with great business opportunities but weak legal institutions and murky business cultures, particularly corruption, possible human rights abuses, regulatory expropriation, uncertain property rights and government authorizations, and poor dispute resolution and law enforcement mechanisms. The book combines substantial introductory text with a series of problems derived from practice. Cases are used principally as a source of problems rather than as a source of law, and there is substantial analysis of legislative and regulatory materials. The book facilitates organization of students into teams to address particular problem-solving exercises, not unlike a business school class but with more rigor.

    This review is from: Doing Business in Emerging Markets: A Transactional Course (University Casebook Series) (Hardcover)

    This book is stunning, but not in a good way. I was required to purchase it for a study-abroad class in law school. I’ve gotten used to the absolutely ridiculous cost of textbooks, but this book tops them all off. It’s the king of the universe when it comes to the textbook scam. “Doing Business in Emerging Markets” is only about 3/4 of an inch thick, yet it commands a price of $144.00. I was able to find a used copy for around $90.00.

    What incredible hubris it takes for these authors to exploit students by demanding a price so high for such a small book. Perhaps it was the publishers that demanded such a price and the authors had no hand in it, but certainly they could have picked a different publisher. This book shows the world what a bubble higher education in the United States in is. With student loans available in essentially unlimited amounts, publishers feel free to hike prices to such astronomical levels without consequence. Of course, students who need loans to pay for tuition and books are double victims. Not only has tuition risen exponentially, textbook prices have as well.

    If this book had to survive in a real publishing market — not subsidized by the higher-education bubble — it could perhaps command a price of a few dollars.

    If you’re a law professor considering this book, please consider something else. There are several other texts on doing business in both emerging and non-emerging markets out there with far more content at a lower price. If you pick this book, your students will surely resent you.
