This book explores the source and extent of the right of parties to an international contract to make appropriate arrangements for the determination of their legal relationship, primarily by selecting the applicable law, but also by selecting the judicial or arbitral forum. The book focuses on the legal systems of the United States, the Commonwealth jurisdictions and the civil law countries of western and central Europe, taking as a starting point the provisions of the several Hague Conventions on the Choice of Law in Sales and other contracts, the Rome Convention of 1980 on the Law Applicable to International Contracts and the Mexico Convention of 1994 on the same topic, as well as modern legislation on conflicts of law. Nygh's aim is to discern a general consensus, where present, and to argue for a further development and extension of the principles of autonomy unhampered by historical notions of territoriality and sovereignty, which hitherto have sought to restrain it, with only such limitations as can be justified for the protection of weaker parties or genuine state interests. This fascinating analysis, written from the author's unique perspective, will be welcomed by practitioners and scholars alike. This book is part of the Oxford Monographs in Private International Law series, the aim of which is to publish work of high quality and originality in a number of important areas of private international law. The series is intended for both scholarly and practitioner readers.

Enter the gritty underworld of Sin City; a place where alliances are short and betrayals are bloody. They call him the "Emperor of Vegas" Dimitri Jordan owns the wildly popular Sumatra Hotel and Casino. He is also the number one narcotics distributor in the city. His ruthlessness in business and in criminal enterprise has earned him billions. But he wants more. Jordan sets his sights on the Petrov Crime Family and their massive share of the international opium trade. War is declared and the city descends into chaos. Desperate to restore order, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department dispatches its best officers to contain the violence. The greatest threat to police, they soon discover, doesn't come from the gangsters; but from within their own ranks. It is the bloodiest gang war in Las Vegas history. The decisive factor, however, will come from the most unlikely of places. Beneath the glamorous facade of the Strip, Las Vegas is a giant powder-keg waiting to blow. Motivated by pure greed, someone just lit the fuse...
