Different disciplines of law are beginning to deal with the challenges created as a result of modern advancements in communication and transportation by adjusting existing doctrine. This valuable text takes up these challenges in the field of personal jurisdiction, particularly the doctrine of forum non conveniens.

The book's compelling thesis is that the role of the forum non conveniens should be strengthened and even enhanced, particularly in light of modern advancements such as Internet transactions, efficient jet travel and telecommunications facilitating transfer of documents and testimony. Karayanni argues, more importantly, that in order to face technological complexities, the forum non conveniens doctrine needs to undergo a basic transformation.

With its approach to American, English and Civil Law jurisprudence, the book provides both insightful comparative and methodological analyses.
