Reviews

“It is well-researched and well written, providing a significant amount of detail in a readable and structured form.” – John Bell, Professor of law, University of Cambridge

“Very few lawyers are equipped with the skills to pursue comparative private international law research. Almost no significant Anglo-American private international law work is done by any other writer in the United Kingdom. In this respect, Alan Reed’s book will provide key perspectives of private international law and inevitably advance learning in the subject….I am sure that this book will prove an important work in the United States, the United Kingdom, and beyond.” – Jonathan Harris, Professor of International Commercial Law, The University of Birmingham
