Comparative Law of Contracts: Cases and Materials Lowest new price: $34.00
Lowest used price: $15.00
List price: $34.00
Author: Alain A. Levasseur
Brand: Brand: Carolina Academic Press

This short book on such a broad topic attempts to illustrate the point made by Professor V. G. Curran that difficulties in transmitting concepts across cultural-linguistic differences can be remedied by taking a cultural immersion approach for effective comparative legal analysis. (Comparative Law, CAP). This book is divided into topics most illustrative of a trans-systemic approach and begins with the History and Foundations of Contract (Part I), with an emphasis on the notion of contract and those elements of a contract considered essential to its formation. The Execution of Contracts (Part II) reflects the impact of the different cultural contexts on the nature and extent of the performance of their obligations by parties to a contract.

The Law of Subsidies Under the Gatt/Wto System

The Law of Subsidies Under the Gatt/Wto System Lowest new price: $148.16
Lowest used price: $35.32
List price: $201.00
Author: Marc Benitah
Brand: Marc Benitah

This work on the law of subsidies has been long-awaited by many actors in international trade. With its introduction of the concept of 'attenuation' of entitlement, Marc Benitah's utterly new analysis alters our understanding of the international economic law of subsidies - and its future invocation and jurisprudence - forever.

The issue of subsidies is arguably the predominant theme, at this moment, in international economic law, and a consistent approach to the legal treatment of subsidies is urgently needed. In Professor Benitah's view, the answer lies in the recognition that entitlements granted to a party seeking to defend itself against the `adverse effects' of subsidies must be `attenuated' in order to avoid undesirable economic and social consequences.

In the various techniques of attenuation - thoroughly described and analyzed in this book - may be found the unifying thread on which a logical, coherent law of subsidies may be strung.

  • Why techniques of attenuation are intimately linked to the birth of past and future legal disputes relating to subsidies
  • Why significant techniques of attenuation (e.g. taking into account the positive impact of a subsidy on consumers) have not arisen in the GATT/WTO context
  • Why much recent theoretical debate on the concept of 'distortion' has not led to a breakthrough in the law of subsidies
  • Why attenuations favouring developing countries are surprisingly legally vulnerable in practice
  • Why deliberate recourse to techniques of attenuation necessitates their continuing clarification through a case law process.

    By referring to the legal materials of both the GATT 1947 and the WTO systems at each point in his demonstration, Professor Benitah lays a substantial groundwork for determining innovative WTO norms.
