For over 40 years Professor Sir Roy Goode QC has been involved in the preparation of international instruments, working with the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law, the Hague Conference of Private International Law and the International Chamber of Commerce. The essays selected for this volume, written over the course of Sir Roy's career, offer a unique insight into the development of transnational commercial law, combining close theoretical study with an understanding of the practical relevance and application of the principles under discussion. Encompassing a range of topics, such as the processes and products of international harmonisation, comparative law and the conflict of laws, and placing a particular emphasis on the policies and problems of harmonisation, these essays were ground-breaking at the time of their publication and are still widely referenced to this day. Authorial commentary on the essays, provided through introductions to each section of the book, helps the reader to trace how the law has developed since, and often as a result of, the publication of each paper.
