Comparative law has transformed into a challenging and interdisciplinary field with a long intellectual history. Mathias Siems’ welcomed addition to the field offers a stimulating and thoughtful introduction to a new kind of comparative law which is contextualised and cosmopolitan as to its nature. The book offers an insightful overview of key issues arising in the comparative study of law today. Siems skilfully deals with established approaches, but also provides cutting-edge views to socio-legal and statistical approaches as well as providing examples from politics, economics and development studies. The work by Siems is a concise synthesis and it is bound to enlighten and provoke its readers. This well-composed book makes wonderful reading for both students and scholars.” Jaakko Husa, University of Lapland

EC Competition Law Giorgio Monti

London School of Economics and Political Science

• Non-technical reviews of the relevant economic literature allow all readers to participate fully in the discussion of competition law

… the most readable and yet thoughtful account on the market. Whilst being very practical, it has the great benefit of making clear the distinctive contributions of law and politics (not simply economics) to competition law in the EU.”

• Detailed case studies illustrate the operation of rules in specific circumstances, as well as their general application for a fuller understanding

Daniel Wilsher, City University London

Monti explores the development of EC competition law through an interdisciplinary approach, focusing on the political and economic considerations that affect the way the rules are interpreted. Written with competition law students in mind, it should also be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students of EU politics and economics.

• The introduction of additional topics for study gives the student the broadest possible perspective on the subject

This book provides the reader with immediate access to understanding the world of international arbitration by explaining how and why arbitration works.

This book is the best up-to-date introduction to international commercial arbitration, including investment arbitration, that is available … Another engaging feature of Professor Moses’s book is that it is clearly and attractively written and describes the problems of arbitration in a concrete and realistic way, taking account of real life practice.

Essentials of WTO Law Peter van den Bossche WTO Appellate Body, Geneva

and Denise Prévost

Universiteit Maastricht, Netherlands

Intended for students and policy makers looking to gain a good understanding of WTO law, this overview of the main rules and procedures of the WTO is written in a concise, accessible and nontechnical manner, and provides both illustrative examples and reading lists to facilitate further learning. • Avoids the technical details which can overload those looking for an introduction to the topic • Demonstrates practical application of theory and rules via fictional illustrative examples • Online resources list shows students where to find the resources they need to look into the ‘real world’ of international trade • Boxes summarising key rulings in WTO case law help readers to see the relevance of dispute settlement rulings and understand how they flesh out the provisions in the WTO agreements

For novice students, academics and practitioners, Essentials of WTO Law is an indispensable starting point for understanding the law and practice of the WTO. In a very clear and succinct style, the authors succeed in conveying to a very wide audience the essence of the function of the WTO, the structure and meaning of its agreements, and the role of the WTO dispute settlement system and its case law. It is the leading primer in WTO law.” Isabelle Van Damme, Référendaire in the chambers of Advocate General Sharpston at the Court of Justice of the European Union, Luxembourg, and Visiting Lecturer, Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium

Foundations of International Migration Law Edited by Brian Opeskin Macquarie University

Richard Perruchoud

International Organisation for Migration

and Jillyanne Redpath-Cross International Organisation for Migration

Written by leading figures of international migration law, Foundations of International Migration Law offers a stimulating survey of the key themes in the field. Broad in scope and with an accessible style, this volume provides an understanding of how specialised international migration law fits with other branches of the discipline. • Broad coverage of relevant legal regimes across the chapters • Each chapter contains a list of key resources and key readings, allowing readers to explore relevant migration institutions, processes and databases

Minimalistically defined by Louis Varlez in 1927 as the body of international norms applicable to migration, international migration law continues to struggle to achieve recognition as a discrete body of international law ranking alongside international criminal law, the law of the sea, international economic law, etc. In a weighty study, featuring sixteen different contributions by leading scholars, the editors seek to furnish an overview of the subject in an accessible foundational text that includes maps, case studies, break-out boxes and a helpful glossary. International migration law is seen to have three pillars: human rights, state sovereignty and international cooperation.” Hugo Storey, International Journal of Refugee Law

• Clearly written chapters on non-specialist sources of IML, including a glossary of essential terms
