Professor DiMatteo's text provides a well-organized, comprehensive tour of international business law. The up-to-date text is sufficiently detailed for the advanced student, but works equally well as an introduction to numerous topics in international law. Clearly written, the text provides both an overview of international business issues and strategies, as well as detailed summaries and highlights of international agreements. The instructor has a wealth of exceptionally detailed case studies and questions to explore with students. An internationally recognized expert in international contract, Professor DiMatteo has included information on the rise of China in global trade, including the attendant economic and ethical implications. Legal issues involving sustainability, including environmental ethics, climate change and human rights raise some of the most pressing issues of our times for students.
