The only all-encompassing guide to the law relating to international finance, this book is based on the author’s university courses, referencing nearly all of the world’s 320 jurisdictions – the first time the topic has been dealt with on such a worldwide comparative basis.
Covering the three principal approaches – the policies of the law, the legal rules and the practical transactions – the book ensures students are presented with doctrine, data and deals, each of which throws light on the other. Students receive a panoramic view of international finance which not only has practitioner-based deals, but also elucidates the law on a global basis without being tied to any single jurisdiction.
