Risk Arbitrage was originally the subject of the author’s MBA Thesis at the Graduate School of Business Administration New York University in June, 1969. It was re-edited and published in The Bulletin of the Institute of Finance in May, 1971. It was republished by Salomon Brothers Center for the Study of Financial Institutions at the Graduate School of Business Administration New York University in 1982. This updated version of Risk Arbitrage follows the development of the arbitrage community from the 1970s to the present time. A new chapter—“Active Arbitrage”—has been added to reflect the incipient melding of arbitrage and activism as a new art form. The point of view of this work and its content reflects the author’s practical experience as an arbitrageur/shareholder activist.
