The Road to Serfdom
Hayek argues convincingly that, while socialist ideals may be tempting, they cannot be accomplished except by means that few would approve of.
Justice for Future Generations

Efficiency in Private International Law
Also available as an e-book Private international law (PIL) problems have existed for centuries when people from various territories and religious and social groups engaged in mutual contacts. Some of the core issues of this discipline have been critically reviewed during the so-called conflicts revolution which took place during the twentieth century in the American academic literature and court practice. However it seems that not much discussion on methodologies of PIL has developed since then. This book, inspired by the Law and Economics approach, introduces the concept of efficiency into PIL, aiming to show new dimensions of traditionally important issues. First, this author challenges the traditional understanding that uniform law is always more desirable than PIL, and raises questions on the rationale and possibility of the unification of PIL. Second, territoriality has been understood to exclude PIL. This book clarifies why such understanding does not hold in the twenty-first century especially in the field of intellectual property, and argues that a one-sizefits-all model would not be appropriate in the context of cross-border insolvency.
Considerations on the Causes of the Greatness of the Romans and Their Decline
"It is wonderful to have David Lowenthal's splendid translation of Montesquieu's Considerations on the Causes of The Greatness of the Romans and Their Decline back in print. This neglected masterpiece deserves attention from all who are concerned with self-government -- whether their focus is on its history or on its prospects in our own time." -- Paul A Rahe, Jay P Walker Professor of History, University of Tulsa.
Arbitration of Commercial Disputes
This significant work is now reissued in paperback, without appendices. The text provides a detailed yet clear and accessible guide to English and international arbitration law. The book initially deals with the principles of arbitration as examined from an international perspective. The authors identify fundamental principles of arbitration law that are common to all jurisdictions, and show how some principles of arbitration law are treated differently in various jurisdictions. The bookalso examines some of the key jurisprudential questions, such as whether an international commercial arbitration is anchored to the place or seat of the arbitration, whether an arbitral award can be enforced even it has been annulled, and the continuing development and use of the lex mercatoria to resolve international commercial arbitrations. The sections on English arbitration law are structured around the provisions of the English Arbitration Act 1996. The work examines in turn the parties to the arbitration, the arbitration agreement, the powers and jurisdiction of the arbitral tribunal, the making of an award and its enforcement. In order to assist practitioners the authors have particularly focused on areas of the law which have changed over recent years and which are still developing. The book gives detailed analysis of court decisions and trends in areas where no clear authority exists, such as in the incorporation of arbitration clauses, and the drafting of arbitrationnotices. The book also deals thoroughly with costs and appeals. The final section of Arbitration of Commercial Disputes provides a comprehensive set of precedents. The precedents section includes both standard arbitration clauses and bespoke agreements, plus examples of clauses dealing with other forms of ADR prior to arbitration. There are also a number of procedural precedents including a set of Terms of Reference, Directions and a confidentiality agreement. There is finally a set of Awards and a section on applications to the English courts.
