Whatever uncertainty there may be regarding the path of law reform, one certainty is that this volume will be a valuable resource for scholars across a range of disciplines, as well as practitioners in law, business and public policy.' - William P. Alford, Henry L. Stimson Professor of Law, Harvard Law School, US
