F.A. Mann is considered to be one of the finest British lawyers of this century, esteemed as an international jurist and as a practising solicitor. He combined a thriving and prestigious practice with a prolific output of writing and teaching, with much of his work centering on the inter-relationship of international and national law. Among his publications are Studies in International Law (OUP, 1973), Further Studies in International Law (OUP, 1990), and Foreign Affairs in English Courts (OUP, 1986). He died in September 1991, whilst at work on the proofs of the fifth edition of his virtually canonical work, The Legal Aspect of Money Notes and Comments on Cases in International Law represents some of the finest of his writing on such diverse topics as Anglo-American Legal Harmony, Bills of Exchange and the Conflict of Laws, the Spycatcher case, Austrian Nationality, and English Procedural Law and Foreign Arbitrations. Throughout his career his case notes were regarded as models of intellectual acuity: constantly stimulating and rigorous in their analysis and style. This new collection of his work will gain a fresh audience for his writing, and should be found on the bookshelves of every lawyer with a serious interest in international law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'It is good to have together all these comments, expressed in Mann's inimitable style ... it is nice to have this extremely well-produced book. It is a pleasure, indeed it is rather fun, to read. Many thanks to all concerned !' The Cambridge Law Journal
`the essays on arbitration, commercial law and international law covering decisions in the United States, Australia, England and elsewhere in Europe can be dipped into with profit' International Company and Commercial Law Review
`They don't make them like that any more. Francis Mann's intellect could crush the most complex problem into a bite-size portion; and his nature was to dispatch the problem, authoritatively and elegantly, without delay ... the present volume, containing 80 case notes and comments and his one speech, are perhaps more quintessentially his than those more substantial pieces ... Connoisseurs of legal writing, as well as those in search of the penetrating critique of an individual case, will relish the collection. The notes and comments are classic examples of the miniaturist's art, from an author whowas also master of the broadest landscapes.' Lloyd's Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly
`This book is an intellectual delight. It is impossible to read a page without hearing the voice and conjuring up the image of Fancis Mann probing, chiding, rebuking, exhorting ... has the limited and specific aim of bringing before a wider audience 50 years of brilliance from a remarkable writer. In this task it succeeds completely. Hours of pleasure await.' Law Quarterly Review
