The first edition of this book made its appearance in 2006. The second edition of the book was published towards the end of 2010. The preface of this second edition states that "[a]s with the first edition, the content, to a large extent, reflects the framework for academic programmes by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA). Since the first edition, SAICA has moved from a knowledge-based syllabus to a competency framework which identifies the professional competencies (knowledge, skills and attributes) that a Charted Accountant (South Africa) should possess on entry to the profession. The competency framework lists specific competencies in strategy, risk management and governance, and an understanding of the laws discussed in , and their application, is an important aspect of corporate governance and risk management. We have tried to demonstrate this by making use of a mythical company established by Sandile and Christina - - whose day-to-day activities in manufacturing security-related products are analysed from a legal perspective to illustrate how knowledge of the law is an important aspect of decision-making in the business environment." The current edition of this book will be evaluated against this background.
