Transnational Commercial Law is a textbook that deals predominantly with substantive legal contract rules that apply across borders and are designed to govern cross-border business transactions. This is an emerging field of research, teaching and practical interest in international trade and commercial law, requiring reference to multiple areas of law, including both private and public international law, the law of specific commercial transactions and arbitration. For the first time Transnational Commercial Law combines all these relevant issues in one book, and provides a basis for further study as well as detailed, cutting edge academic analyses. It provides a compact yet accessible guide to the most important cornerstones of this evolving legal discipline.

Transnational Commercial Law is aimed primarily for use on LLM courses and master's programmes in commercial law. Students are presented with the actual contractual rules in the wider context of the general legal framework, and situates it within the theoretical debate, providing a truly international perspective on transnational commercial law in a globalised world.
