About Dalhuisen on Transnational Comparative, Commercial, Financial and Trade Law Volume 3

This is the seventh edition of the leading work on transnational and comparative commercial, financial, and trade law, covering a wide range of complex topics in the modern law of international commerce and finance. As a guide for students and practitioners it has proven to be unrivalled. The work is divided into three volumes, each of which can be used independently or as part of the complete work.

Volume 3 deals with financial products and financial services; the structure and operation of banking and of the capital markets; the role of modern commercial and investment banks; and financial risk, stability and regulation, including the fallout from the 2008 financial crisis and the subsequent regulatory responses in the US and Europe. In sections on products and services, the blockchain and its potential are noted in the payment system, in the custodial holdings of investment securities, and in the derivative markets. A section on regulation critically reviews the need for macro-prudential supervision and an independent macro-prudential supervisor, the role of resolution authorities, the operation of the shadow banking system, and the extraterritorial reach and international recognition of financial regulation.

All three volumes may be purchased separately or as part of a single set.

“From the reviews of previous editions:
'... remains a must read for practitioners and academics interested in more than the substantive law of trans-border commercial activity. For students of transnational law with some philosophical and historiographical knowledge, Dalhuisen's three volumes are an obvious choice too, as the true value of this work lies in his continuous proposals for new perspectives as opposed to a mere collection of and reflection on existing data on the subject. They are concise, informative and for this subject in the ascendance highly authoritative'.
” –  King's Law Journal

“From 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

“From the reviews of previous editions:
'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

“From the reviews of previous editions:
'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

“From the reviews of previous editions:
'... 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 Quarterly
