International Conflict of Laws (Common, Civil and Maritime)is a text written for judges, lawyers, professors, students and laymen, with particular reference to the United States, the United Kingdom, France and Canada (and with a considerable number of references to Australia and the European Union). The work also contains summaries of the conflicts law of 41 different countries written by experts from each country

International Conflict of Laws (Common, Civil and Maritime) helps the reader solve difficult questions as to which laws apply in international trade, commerce and maritime matters; for example, which law applies to contracts in general (and to bills of lading, charterparties, marine insurance, arbitration agreements, etc., in particular) and to torts/delicts in general (ship collisions, division of damages, shipowners' limitation of liability in particular), and which law applies when there is a damage to a shipment from one country to another or when there is a collision on the High Seas.

The book has general chapters applicable to all conflicts of laws, including contracts, tort, proof, interpretation and damages, and when courts have jurisdiction, when foreign judgments are recognized and foreign law is proven. The book is first and foremost a book on conflict of laws and the first of its kind to be truly international. It is not the law of conflicts from the viewpoint of one nation, it is the law of conflicts for all nations. This is also the first time that a text has dealt with the particular conflict rules in common law and civil law in every chapter.
