This short book on such a broad topic attempts to illustrate the point made by Professor V. G. Curran that difficulties in transmitting concepts across cultural-linguistic differences can be remedied by taking a cultural immersion approach for effective comparative legal analysis. (Comparative Law, CAP). This book is divided into topics most illustrative of a trans-systemic approach and begins with the History and Foundations of Contract (Part I), with an emphasis on the notion of contract and those elements of a contract considered essential to its formation. The Execution of Contracts (Part II) reflects the impact of the different cultural contexts on the nature and extent of the performance of their obligations by parties to a contract.
Alain Levasseur is the Hermann Moyse, Sr. Professor of Law and Director for European Studies, Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center.Review :
The small size of this volume hides the depth and wealth of the juxtaposition between some basic concepts and institutions of the law of contracts in the civil law and the common law traditions. The French, German, Italian, Quebec and Louisiana legal systems are examined in parallel with the English and American legal systems, as well as with the Principles of UNIDROIT, the Vienna Convention,...Not only law students but lawyers involved in international transactions will find a most helpful guide in his unique perspective of the law of contracts. Only a 'jurist' at ease in a trans-systemic legal system, as is the legal system of Louisiana, could have succeeded in this challenging endeavor. --Xavier Blanc-Jouvan, Professor of Law, Emeritus, Paris 1; Director, Revue Internationale de Droit Comparé.
