This volume provides a complete and authoritative English translation of Parts I, II, and III of the Russian Civil Code, which entered into force in complete form in March 2002. The Civil Code is the central document of market reforms in Russia, dealing with the law of persons (including companies), ownership, contract in all forms, tort, unjust enrichment, inheritance, and private international law. It has been translated from the Russian by Professor Butler, an
acknowledged expert in the field, and benefits from a detailed article-by-article table of contents, a thorough subject-index to the Code, and a Russian-English glossary of civil law terms.
An essential tool for any practitioner or student of Russian Law, Civil Code of the Russian Federation will be published alongside a collection of translated Russian Company and Commercial Legislation (0199261520) and the second edition of Professor Butler's acclaimed text on Russian Law (0199254001).

William E. Butler needs no introduction to the community of academics and practitioners of Russian law...an excellent treatise on the subject...it would be a shortsighted librarian who would overlook these resources...no library on Russian law could possibly be considered complete without Butler's treatises. * Review of Central and East European Law *
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 the law 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. *
