The Arthur Young Management Guide to Mergers and Acquisitions.

The editor and several senior investment banking and corporate financial executives examine a variety of approaches used to identify and value acquisition targets. Legal and regulatory concerns are covered, particularly antitrust issues, along with financing alternatives and accounting and tax considerations. An interesting section deals with the difficult process of integrating an acquisition, which often can be more difficult than the initial merger, especially when major differences exist in the cultures of the organizations being combined. The pros and cons of acquisitions outside the United States also are covered. This is an excellent collection of essays for anyone interested in M&As.
