"This wonderfully compact book is a "must" for students and practitioners interested in private international law. It brings together principles of jurisdiction, choice of law, and recognition of judgments and shows the interrelationship of the rules and their effect on cases in the European Union. For those in Europe, it offers a complete and systematic overview of material that everyone interested in transnational litigation must know. For those in the United States, it provides one of the first comprehensive and accessible accounts of the European private international law system that lawyers in the United States are encountering more and more in their own cases. Rich in information and well-organized in structure, this book... is a gem."
--Professor Linda Silberman, Martin Lipton Professor of Law, New York University School of Law
