This is Professor Cunningham's Introduction to his renowned edited collection of Warren Buffett's famous letters to shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. The collection was originally prepared for a symposium held in New York City in 1997 and has been regularly updated through five editions, with additional Buffett material and Cunningham annotations. This Introduction, from the fifth edition (2019), serves as an encapsulation of the main themes of the resulting collection and locates them in contemporary debates on matters of corporate governance; corporate finance and investing; mergers and acquisitions; and accounting and taxation.
