Summary
In this series of ten provocative and learned essays, one of America's leading writers on private and public international law addresses the cutting edge issues of transnational litigation. Professor Lowenfeld sets out the current debates on the reach of national jurisdiction, both legislative and judicial, as seen in the United States, in England, and on the Continent. He examines the effects doctrine, recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments, and liability of multinational corporations, suggesting that the principle of reasonableness may lead to a narrowing of differences, if not consensus. The reader is asked to go beyond the conventional criticism of American-style discovery to question how facts should be assembled in controversies that stretch beyond the frontiers of a single nation.
The book's lively style and rich source material, as well as the author's lifetime of experience as a lawyer, arbitrator, government official, and scholar make International Litigation and the Quest for Reasonableness recommended reading for anyone interested in conflict of laws, international law, or civil procedure - student, academic, or practitioner.
