This is a new edition of Peter Oliver's classic work Free Movement of Goods in the European Community (now, in the light of the Lisbon Treaty revisions "European Union") which has established itself as one of the leading works of reference on European law for practitioners and academics alike. Indeed, whether advising clients or preparing for teaching there is no European lawyer who can afford not to have a copy of this book close to hand. Concise, precise, and lucid, the book has become the first port of call for anyone seeking answers to questions about the foundations of free movement of goods in the EU. With specialist chapters written by leading academic and practising lawyers, including Peter Oliver himself, this edition has been extensively rewritten to take into account recent judgments from the ECJ, including important cases such as C-110/05 Commission v Italy ("trailers") and C- 142/05 Mickelsson ("jet skis"), both of which relate to restrictions on the use of goods. It also takes account of all the recent European legislation and the impact of the Lisbon Treaty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic work of reference on European Law NOW COMPLETELY UP TO DATE FOR THE 5th EDITION An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Be you practitioner or academic, if you are involved in either teaching, or advising clients on European law, you need Peter Oliver’s classic work, which, since the first edition was published, has come to be regarded as one of the leading works of reference in this field. Here, in 15 chapters and just over 500 pages, you’ll find answers to virtually any questions you may have about -- in the author’s words -- ’the foundations of free movement of goods in the European Union’. The book focuses on case law rather than legislation. The author, Peter Oliver -- who singlehandedly wrote the first three editions – is now ably assisted by a team of no less than six expert contributors -- although overall editorial control remains with Peter Oliver. Since the previous edition was published in 2003, a number of important changes have occurred in the European sphere, most notably the Treaty of Lisbon, which came into force on 1st December 2009 when the ‘EC’ merged into the EU. This, fifth edition therefore contains a considerable amount of new material. As pointed out in the preface, over one hundred judgments have been delivered on Article 34 TFEU (ex Article 28 EC). As for new cases, the author identifies the most important ones as C-110/05 Commission v Italy and C-142/05 (‘trailers’) Mickelsson (‘jet skis’), each of which relate to restrictions imposed on the use of goods. This is a careful and thorough work of reference of over 500 pages, lucidly structured for ease of use, with Tables of Cases, European Treaties, Other Conventions and Treaties, plus a Table of European Legislation, List of National Regulatory and Legislative Acts, There is a detailed index and three Annexes, which include extracts from leading judgments and a selected bibliography. Carrying the weight of authority and a towering reputation as the definitive work of reference in this subject, it’s the latest edition of this book and will help you provide your clients with the most up to date advice and informed representation in this complex area. The law addressed is at 31January 2010 and remains a classic work of reference for European Law today.
