About the Authors
  • The emergence of a European private law is a key legal issue today. Set-off and "extinctive" prescription are neglected topics in comparative literature. Reinhard Zimmermann maps out a model for a common European approach, providing practical examples of the arguments that may be employed in the process of harmonizing European private law. The essays originated during his work with the Commission on European Contract Law (the "Lando-Commission"), whose task is the "restatement" of European contract law. This volume is for comparative lawyers and legal historians.

    • Contains practical studies in the search for a European private law
    • Deals with largely neglected areas within the law of obligations
    • Written during a tenureship as A. L. Goodheart Professor of Legal Science in Cambridge

    Review of the hardback: 'Who has never dreamed of a book containing the most up-to-date legal theories and trends on a specific topic and which would at the same time be short enough to be read from the first to the last page almost like a novel? If you are such a dreamer, do not hesitate to reach for this book.' Edinburgh Law Review
