Editor Atherton,Rosalind F.
This collection of articles is a reflection of the wide range of interests held by estate and trust lawyers. The issues discussed include: art law in the context of an estate or trust; questions of control over the body itself, including the futuristic issue of the status of frozen embryos in relation to an estate; broad trusts' issues, including the place and nature of the trust in both civil and common law jurisdictions; and the resolution of family property concerns in relation to matrimonial law, forced heirship laws, or family provision on death. Other articles consider practical questions such as transnational tax planning, planning for the transition of a family business on death, retirement planning and the management of collective investments. The work takes a comparative approach, examining each issue from the perspective of a number of different jurisdictions. This collection arises from the annual meetings and discussion of members from the International Academy of Estate and Trust Law. 963pp.

Edited By De Avillez Pereira,Miguel
This is the first publication of AIJA's Antitrust Sub-Commission of the International Business Law Standing Commission. The book is the result of the reports from 20 different jurisdictions for the working session organized by the Antitrust Sub-Commission during the Annual Congress of AIJA in Sydney in September 1998. The reports were based upon a questionnaire prepared by the General Reporter and Editor and generally reflect legislation up until January 1999. The purpose of this book is to discuss the critical issues in applying antitrust laws to the media sector, having in mind three main issues, namely deregulation and convergence in the media industry worldwide, the effect of antitrust laws on the new media environment, and the balance between sector-specific regulation and antitrust rules. 442pp.

Shim,Dr. Young
This work presents a critical analysis and evaluation of the Korean banking regulatory and supervisory system. It identifies the continuing structural weaknesses of the system, which were thrown into sharp relief by the 1997 financial crisis, and focuses on the need for reform in order to achieve financial stability. The study centres around three central questions: who should be the regulator; what substantive standards of supervision should be applied; and administratively, in what manner should these standards be applied? The author argues that the Korean banking system, characterized as a "governmental control system" for credit allocation, should be released from undue governmental and political interference, thus allowing the involvement of banks in commercially oriented practices without exposure to the significant risks incurred by governmental policy directed lending. The author calls for a high degree of transparency and accountability, for a clear, realistic timetable for restructuring, and for an effective exit policy for troubled commercial banks. This text should be of value to practitioners, researchers and academics working in the field of banking law, particularly those with a special interest in the Asia-Pacific region. 226pp.

Lee,Yong-Shik
It is indisputable that the prevailing global trade regime, as embodied in the rules of the World Trade Organization (WTO), has overcome numerous long-standing obstacles and has greatly increased the international flow of goods and services. However, a few significant barriers remain. Among these none are more disruptive or less understood than import restrictions resulting from national safeguard measures. This is a full-scale analysis of the law pertaining to the application of safeguard measures in world trade. It covers the field in depth, from the rationale of safeguards to the detailed procedures and available remedies under WTO rules. 218pp.
