  • "A pioneering systematization of Chinese legislation, regulations, judicial instructions and directives, doctrinal materials, and selected judicial practice relating to private international law, set out in the form of a Restatement, with commentary, followed by a draft Code which distills the best of the material and makes suggestions for improvements or offers a rationale for retaining the existing rules--drawing upon leading worldwide experience and trends. Dr. Zhu offers a learned, insightful, and informed illumination of a singularly obscure and complex domain of Chinese law, offering reasoned solutions or approaches that legal practitioners, academic lawyers, and policymakers will find instructive"--
