Format: Paperback
It was one of the recommended books for my llm programme and i had to buy a copy for myself because i found it very useful. I particularly like how he goes into full detail on int'l finance and its more of a practical book rather than theoretical. As a lawyer if i were to draft a document on intl finance i would definitely consult this book.

Format: Paperback
I would recommend this book very highly to any law student or junior lawyer. It covers international finance law in all the main global legal systems from a very high level perspective, with more commentary given to the positions in the common law systems of England and the US, but also with commentary on typical requirements under the Napoleonic legal systems and the Roman-Germanic legal systems. The author concisely explains the policy behind many of the differences between the finance laws of different jurisdictions, which makes the book very readable. It is not, however, a practitioner's guide to English finance law, but a rather a broad overview from an international perspective. As finance becomes increasingly more globalised, this book is a good introduction to the issues that are likely to become increasingly more relevant to finance lawyers in the future.

Professor Wood's wonderful statement on international finance law

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

Professor Wood told us at his book launch that this work is for law and economics undergraduates drawn from the seven main volumes of his definitive statement on the law and practice of international finance. That is exactly what it is, and it fulfills its purpose superbly explaining international finance law.

This edition is a summary of his 7 volume work covering the entire scope of the subject on a comparative and a world-wide basis. Wood succeeds in his aim of explaining the politics and the law, and how the transactions work out in practice. The chapter headings can be taken as lectures followed by questions and seminar topics which will be of use to lecturers and learners.

Philip Wood is a charming man to meet and the master of this substantive law with his definitive experience of the subject. His enthusiasm comes out clearly with this work which distils complex and confusing information brilliantly in a way which aids memory as he wishes it to do.

He describes the areas as `doctrine, data and deals'. How right he is! He gets the learner to go where he is as quickly as possible (a fine feat in itself), so (as he puts it) "they can then leap forwards". In this exciting and important area of law he does just that.
