The Yearbook of European Law is the leading English Language annual in European Law, and as such is a very important part of the literature of European Law. The Yearbook has quickly established a reputation for publishing only material of the highest quality, but more than that, editorialpolicy has always been to publish material of practical, commercial interest in addition to more theoretically orientated work. A short list of articles selected from recent issues of the Yearbook illustrates the dual appeal of this publication: Mergers and Joint Ventures in the EEC by Jeremy Lever and Paul Lasok (1986) Damages in the National Courts for Breach of Community Law by Nicholas Green and Ami Barav (1986) The EEC Directive on Product Liability by Simon Whittaker (1985). The ERTA Judgement and the Court's Case-Law on Competence and Conflict by John Temple Lang (1986). In addition to these lengthy and thoughtful articles, which are of the kind not generally found elsewhere in serial publications, the Yearbook contains Annual Surveys of European Political Co-operation, Competition Law, Council of Europe, the European Convention on Human Rights, the Community'sRelations with State-Trading Countries of Europe, and the European Parliament. There is an extensive section of book reviews and a complete list of Commission Decision Competitors. The whole book is fully indexed and includes a table of cases. This is a publication which no practising lawyer involved in European law should be without. It is also of paramount importance to academics working in the fields of European Law and European Politics and Policy.
