Dalhuisen on Transnational Comparative, Commercial, Financial and Trade Law
This is the sixth edition of the leading work on transnational and comparative commercial and financial law, covering a wide range of complex topics in the modern law of international commerce, finance and trade. As a guide for students and practitioners it has proven to be unrivalled. The work is divided into three volumes, each of which can be used independently or as part of the complete work.
Volume one covers the roots and foundations of private law; the different orientations and structure of civil and common law; the concept, forces, and theoretical basis of the transnationalisation of the law in the professional sphere; the autonomous sources of the new law merchant or modern lex mercatoria, its largely finance-driven impulses; and its relationship to domestic public policy and public order requirements. This new edition adds a chapter on the transnationalisation of commercial, financial and foreign investment dispute resolution. It explains the more limited nature of international dispute resolution through arbitration as compared to dispute resolution in the ordinary courts, the powers of international arbitrators, the expansion of these powers when they speak for the public interest, and the need in that case for proper supervision.
All three volumes may be purchased separately or as part of a single set.
