Originally published in 2005. It is now possible to identify, within the discipline of law, a distinct body of international commercial law. This engaging book consists of a wide-ranging series of essays which demonstrates the breadth and scope of the subject matter of international commercial law. Many of the themes identified bridge both national and international commercial law. The volume consists of three parts: Credit and Security; Contractual Issues; International Commercial Regulation. It is evident that international commercial law is concerned with private and public law within which there are particular disciplines ranging from banking law, e-commerce, intellectual property, insolvency and increasingly international regulation through criminal law extending beyond frontiers.
