In short, the coverage is comprehensive and the contents compelling. This commentator unreservedly applauds this new entrant to the International Business Law library. It will appeal to a wide range of readers' - David Milman, Professor of Law, Lancaster University With contributions from the main stakeholders in the field, including company lawyers as well as leading scholars, this five volume collection of classic and contemporary articles maps out the key issues in Business Law.
