Editorial Reviews

`Review from other book by this author It is a book of encyclopaedic dimensions, useful to many teachers, students, researchers and practising lawyers...Very welcome also is the final chapter on resource materials. Because of its coverage of what might be termed 'business law' (including thelaw of foreign investment and trade) William E Butler's book will be a welcome addition to the library of any practising lawyer who anticipates contact with Russian Law. The detailed notes about available databases on Russian law in the final chapter make it particuarly valuable in this regard ...scholarly and detailed.'Jane McGregor, Seer, 78, 3, 2000.
