Well-known since its first edition for its lucid explanation of the important concepts affecting international commercial agreements in terms that a lawyer or business executive new to the field can understand and use - rather than the legal jargon of experts talking to other experts - this incomparable one-volume work provides basic, precise information on setting up and performing international trade transactions. Its focus reflects the reality of the day-to-day business of international trade, which is primarily an undertaking between two private businesses based on a contract drafted and negotiated between the two parties for performance by them with occasional third-party assistance. Reinforcing the book's concentration on the private dimensions of international trade, and more precisely on the contractual aspects of that trade, the Fourth Edition extends its coverage to the newest growing dimensions of the field, with new chapters on intellectual property, international electronic commerce, and online dispute resolution. the much-appreciated solid basic information on a wide variety of issues that people will encounter in putting together international commercial agreements is of course still here, and includes the following: ; specific guidance on drafting commercial agreements; background material on contract formation, including basic information on contract law; differences between international and domestic contracts; in-depth exploration of negotiation techniques to help smooth the negotiation process; detailed discussion of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation/conciliation as well as arbitration; drafting contracts to cover a wide variety of business relationships, such as sale of services, franchises, joint ventures, and licenses; regional differences; online dispute resolution; and emerging new trends in international commercial arrangements. The reader will find a substantial amount of information and discussion on international electronic commerce both in separate chapters and within chapters on more general topics. In its recognition that a business executive entering into an international commercial transaction is mainly interested in drafting an agreement that satisfies all of the parties and that will be performed as promised, this superb functional guide for negotiation, drafting and resolving disputes in international commercial agreements will immeasurably assist any lawyer or business executive to plan and carry out individual transactions even when that person is not interested in a full-blown understanding of the entire landscape of international contracts. Business executives who are not lawyers will find that the book gives them the understanding and perspective necessary to work effectively with the legal experts.

Most public finance books are texts, which are aimed at undergraduate or graduate students. They are overly technical in nature and appeal only to a narrow range of bureaucrats and academics. Books on taxation are written for tax practitioners and usually emphasize either what the law is or how to maneuver through the labyrinth of tax law to minimize taxes for clients. Philosophy books on taxation or public finance simply do not exist. The Philosophy of Taxation and Public Finance is different. It is written in nontechnical language and is aimed to appeal to a wide range of readers, including practitioners, academics and students in the fields of taxation, public finance, economics, law, philosophy and political science as well as general readers who are interested in learning why they are being taxed the way they are. The author addresses the major issues and topics in taxation and public finance and injects them with philosophical insights. He discusses questions such as: -What arguments have been used to justify taxation? -When is tax evasion unethical? -Are some taxes better than others? -What are the proper functions of government? -How much is enough? Is the ability to pay concept valid? -When can punitive taxes be justified?
