First published in 1938, The Legal Aspect of Money has become the foremost authority on the law of money throughout the world. The fifth edition has been revised and updated to include discussion of recent changes in international (especially European) law.

Although originally intended primarily as a reference work on the English law of money, the comparative methodology established in the original edition has been maintained, and readers will find the combination of new material plus established scholarship an indispensable guide to the financial and legal systems of the world.

This book is intended for practising lawyers working in finance, banking, and corporate law. Academic and practising international lawyers.
