The subject of declining jurisdiction in private international law is one of enormous practical importance and academic interest. It is also a topic where a comparative approach is particularly revealing. This book contains the 17 national reports and the general report on the subject of `Rules for declining to exercise jurisdiction: Forum Non Conveniens, Lis Pendens'. The Reports were held in Athens/Delphi in August 1994. The list of nations for which a report has been prepared is as follows: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Quebec, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, Switzerland, and USA. This book by bringing together all the reports on `Declining Jurisdiction' provides a unique insight into this topic, and, dealing as it does with a key aspect of private international law, fits very well into the Oxford series of monographs on private international law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Anyone who is interested in conflict of laws problems either as a scholar or in practice must read it and will gain a great deal from it...the national reports can be most usefully understood and compared...The work will be difficult to surpass. It is a magnificent contribution to a comparative understanding of the problems of jurisdiction facing courts around the world...an invaluable addition to the shelves.' * Civil Justice Quarterly *
'well-presented book...to be welcomed as yet another example of a 'vertical' volume in addition to the traditional national collections of reports on any subject written by all the contributors from a particular country...This book opens a new series of Oxford Monographs, under the general editorship of Professor P B Carter, whose aim is to publish work of originality and quality in important areas of private international law. No doubt, the first title fully lives up to this standard.' * Netherlands International Law Review *
'each national entry is of great interest, many contain thoughtful and balanced legal analysis.' * Lloyd's Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly *
