Reviews

"...this substantial volume...offers an entirely fitting tribute to its honorand..."Making Commerical Law" is replete with studies that will prove of considerable interest to all varieties of commerical lawyer. Ross Cranston is to be unstintingly congratulated on putting together this showcase of commercial scholarship and this reviewer has no hesitation in commending it to readers in highly enthusiastic terms." 'It is difficult to imagine a collection of essays that in their exploration of issues of equal moment for both academic and practising lawyers could be a more appropriate tribute to the unique achievement of the man who provided their inspiration. Their study may accordingly be expected to be equally rewarding for both, as indeed for all interested in transnational commercial law.'
