"Professor Emmert's magisterial new work, International Business Transactions, represents, in the range and depth of its coverage, and in the rigour and perception of its analysis, the most complete exposition of the law, practice, and procedure in the area. The most remarkable thing about this book is that it is clear, direct, and accessible."—Datuk Professor Sundra Rajoo, international lawyer and arbitrator, Kuala Lumpur; former president of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, London
"This book represents a breakthrough for the teaching of international business transactions. Frank Emmert has performed the nearly impossible task of covering this subject in great detail, while keeping the work exceptionally user-friendly. It will be the 'go to' book for the teaching and learning of IBT."—George A. Bermann, Gellhorn Professor of Law and Jean Monnet Professor of European Union Law; Director, Center for International Commercial and Investment Arbitration (CICIA); Co-Director, European Legal Studies Center at Columbia University School of Law
