Not many writers in the diverse and very broad fields of transnational law are capable of integrating them into a clear, coherent and concise reading. The fourth edition of Dalhuisen on Transnational Comparative, Commercial, Financial and Trade Law continues to examine these bodies of law from the formation of contracts in civil and common law to the private international law aspects of chattels and assignments, and from modern security interests to international aspects of financial services regulation with its unique virtuosity in explanation, narration and presentation. Dalhuisen takes an international perspective on these various subjects, helping to locate domestic commercial and financial law in their wider context.Each of the three volumes of this impressive work starts with a comprehensive coverage of the general principles and key issues. With a critical and contextual approach, the writing then goes in-depth, presenting the distinctive common law and civil law, modern European and United States approaches with admirable clarity.Dalhuisen's massive oeuvre, in this fourth edition, continues to be a unique and significant contribution to transnational commercial and financial law.Tey Tsun HangSingapore Journal of Legal StudiesDecember 2011It is still the only work presenting knowledge that flows from the modern legal environment following the expanded European market and legal space in a comprehensive way on each page. Dalhuisen offers an effortless comparative record on the international commercial contract law and regulation of our day. The text consistently uses fluent well formulated narrative which makes it enjoyable to read.Maren HeidemannInternational and Comparative Corporate Law JournalVolume 8, Issue 4From the reviews of previous editions:"...synthesizes and integrates diverse bodies of law into a coherent and accessible account...remarkable in its scope and depth. It stands alone in its field not only due to its comprehensive coverage, but also its original methodology. Although it appears to be a weighty tome, in fact, in light of its scope, it is very concise. While providing a wealth of intensely practical information, its heart is highly conceptual and very ambitious...likely to become a classic text in its field."American Journal of Comparative Law"Dalhuisen's style is relaxed...what he writes convinces without the need for an excess of references to sources...a highly valuable contribution to the legal literature. It adopts a useful, modern approach to teaching the young generation of lawyers how to deal with the increasing internationalisation of law. It is also helpful to the practising lawyer and to legislators."Uniform Law Review/Revue de Droit Uniforme"this is a big book, with big themes and an author with the necessary experience to back them up. ... Full of insights as to the theories that underlie the rules governing contract, property and security, it is an important contribution to the law of international commerce and finance."Law Quarterly Review"...presents a very different case: that of a civilized and cultivated cosmopolitan legal scholar, with a keen sense of international commercial and financial practice, with an in-depth grounding in both comparative legal history and comparative law, combined with the ability to transcend conventional English black-letter law description with critical judgment towards institutional wisdom and intellectual fashions. ...a wide-ranging, historically and comparatively very deep and comprehensive commentary, but which is also very contemporary and forward-looking on many or most of the issues relevant in modern transnational commercial, contract and financial transactions..."International and Comparative Law QuarterlyAbout the Author:
