Elkins's A Short & Happy Guide to Corporate Taxation
Softbound - New, softbound print book.
Corporate taxation is widely considered one of the more difficult courses in the law school curriculum. The purpose of the book is to make the subject matter slightly less daunting by familiarizing the student with some of the core concepts of corporate taxation: distributions, redemptions, liquidations, divisions, reorganizations, and the like. Integrating black-letter law with a healthy dose of critical analysis, this Short and Happy tome can serve either as a stand-alone volume or as a complementary study aid to a longer and undoubtedly dourer textbook.
