Review �I reviewed all of the major textbooks in the field and find [Bagley�s MANAGERS AND THE LEGAL ENVIRONMENT: STRATEGIES FOR THE 21ST CENTURY] consistently in the forefront. Each chapter, clearly summarizes -- with very recent additions of statutory law and case cites drawn from federal and state courts around the country -- both the current state of the law and the evolution of law. Students not only understand where the law is now, but also get a sense of its long-term trends and directions. My students get a broad and detailed background from reading this textbook, and that allows me to focus on key points from my perspective in classroom lectures and discussion. I�m continually impressed by the way the author reconfigures and expands material, edition by edition, not only to update it, but also to make it even more accessible to students. Professor Bagley knows how to bring the most to those of us who teach law in a business school setting. Her latest edition, like the editions before it, is an invaluable resource.� About the Author Constance E.
