Available for the first time in English, in this thought-provoking collection of essays Guido Alpa applies his cosmopolitan approach to current issues in European, private and commercial law.

Covering a broad and diverse range of topics, he provides insights on the themes of harmonization, the relationship of the world’s legal systems, and the influence of comparative law in the evolution of legal forms.

Most lawyers will find in this book something of interest as well as plenty of cause for envy for the culture of a man who is not only an exemplar of Italian learning but also a good and loyal friend of our own law. One can thus not only commend this book to one’s colleagues in [Italy]this country but also congratulate the British Institute of International and Comparative Law on its initiative to make these essays available to English speakers.
