Because of the blurring of the frontier between national and international law, many general practicing lawyers have a grasp of what was previously the domain of comparative lawyers. This study considers private international law in the global context and explores the concepts of policy and pragmatism in order to theorize and analyze private international law. The book argues that contrary to the premises of English scholars, pragmatism means policy; a pragmatic approach must be a political one.
