: This is the fifth edition of author Jan Dalhuisen's leading work on transnational and comparative commercial and financial law.

The three volumes cover a wide range of complex topics in the modern law of international commerce, finance, and trade. It is an unrivaled guide for students and practitioners, and all three volumes may be purchased individually or as a single, complete, three volume set. *** "Volume 1: Introduction: The New Lex Mercatoria and Its Sources (Fifth Edition)" - Volume 1 covers the roots and foundations of private law; the different orientations and structure of civil and common law; the concept, forces, and theoretical basis of the transnationalization of the law in the professional sphere; the autonomous sources of the new law merchant or modern lex mercatoria, its largely finance-driven impulses; and its relationship to domestic public policy and public order requirements.
