Professor Wood¿s wonderful statement on international finance law is now in paperback. He told me 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.
