In recent years there have been a number of important Hague lectures by conflict scholars, many standard treaties have seen new editions and important new ones have appeared. In addition, the highest courts of several American states, including California and New York, and those of several foreign nations have changed their case law in subtle and less subtle ways.;A number of countries, including Germany, Mexico and Switzerland have enacted conflicts statutes and several new conventions have been drafted by the Hague Conference on Private International Law and the Organization of American States. Yet, with all this movement, the fundamental approaches to choice of law that this book attempts to explore have remained the same as when the author held his course at the Hague Academy of International Law in 1983.
