Gallagher, Peter
148pp.As the ultimate arbiter in the global trade regime, the dispute settlement system of the World Trade Organization (WTO) is a body whose workings should be known to business people and their counsel everywhere. Here is a book - reviewed for accuracy by the WTO but written independently - that provides an uncomplicated but thorough explanation of the system, its purpose, its rules, and the role it plays in the management of the international economy. Peter Gallagher, a former trade negotiator and a specialist in the Uruguay Round agreements, answers such questions as: what sort of disputes does the WTO deal with?; can business or citizens use the WTO dispute system?; is it possible to get a temporary injunction to stop some action?; how much does it cost a to bring a case?; how far can you keep on appealing a decision?; what processes does a Panel follow?; what does the Appellate Body review?; what process does the Appellate Body follow?; how does intervention by other parties affect a dispute? As a handy guide to "bringing a case" before the WTO, or responding to a case already in progress, this easy-to-use book should prove an ideal starting point for lawyers, business people, or government officials confronted with a disputable trade issue.

Lang, Michael H.
A number of cases regarding the fundamental freedoms in respect to direct taxation are pending at the European Court of Justice in 2003. This book discusses the national background of the pending cases and a possible infringement of a fundamental freedom by observing the ECJ's testing scheme on the basis of the request for a preliminary ruling and, if available - of the opinion of the advocate general. The pending cases are all presented by highly recognized experts in the field of European tax law of the country that made the request for the preliminary ruling. This guarantees that the discussion of obstacles is embedded in the particular tax system. 208pp.

Atherton, R. F. (Editor)
The International Academy of Estate and Trust Law is a prestigious body that effects real change in courts, law reform commissions and governmental agencies. This volume records the May 2001 conference in San Francisco, which focused on four main topics: the regulation of charitable organizations in major Western countries; the rules governing capacity to enter into transactions affecting property; the ability of creditors to reach assets that are held on behalf of another; and the issue of testamentary freedom versus forced heirship. This yearbook signals a departure from earlier volumes in that the papers under the fourth topic are after-the-fact essays, reflecting arguments and points of view originally presented in a debate between the four authors. As always, this annual continues to offer perspectives on issues of direct and immediate concern for both civil law and common law jurisdictions, and to engage the deep interest of researchers, academics, practitioners, law reform bodies, governmental groups and their advisers working in this complex and varied field of law. 302pp.

Editors Crossfield,Anne and Heemann,Manfred
As the transnational character of banking and finance activities becomes ever more pronounced, there is a clear need for lawyers in the field to become conversant with pertinent legal developments in national jurisdictions other than their own. This book takes a major step towards fulfilling that need. It not only provides essential orientation in the banking law of nine countries in which international financial business is commonly transacted, but also offers experienced, high-quality insights into developments and trends in each of these jurisdictions. With origins in the discussions of the Banking and Finance Commission of the International Association of Young Lawyers (AIJA), this work examines the main areas of banking and finance law across a broad spectrum of areas of law from project finance to financial services regulation. Most of the chapters were originally presented as papers at a conference on "Managing Banking Risks and Combating Fraud" which was jointly organised by IBC and AIJA in London in March 1998. These papers have been updated for inclusion in this work, with the addition of a General Report and a new paper on the United States which takes into account the new Financial Services and Modernization Act (FSMA). Each chapter follows a predetermined outline, so the reader can easily make a comparative analysis across the countries covered. 270pp.

Merryman, John Henry and Elsen,Albert E.
Although the 1990s witnessed more than a few episodes of shocking cultural destruction, this text notes a great surge in worldwide consciousness of the unique, irreplaceable character of art, and a significant rollback of the cultural prejudices that have been ebbing away since the 1954 Hague Convention declared all art works, whatever their origin, to be "the cultural heritage of mankind." Whether you need to understand a concept such as who owns the past, or something as mundane as whether a museum can sell part of its collection in order to fix the roof, this book aims to set you on the right course. It combines scholarship with a humanistic approach, recognising that law and art each (in the words of Paul Freund) "impose a measure of order on the disorder of experience without stifling the underlying diversity, spontaneity, and disarray."
