What Do We Really Know About the American Choice-of-Law Revolution?

This Book Review reviews Symeon Symeonides's recent book, The American Choice-of-Law Revolution: Past, Present and Future. I conclude that the book is required reading in the field and that it pushes the law in the right direction in significant ways. However, I suggest that it falls short in its effort to tell the full story of the Revolution, for two reasons. First, the data set is limited to published opinions. Second, we cannot evaluate the Revolution simply by looking at judicial opinions. I argue that scholarship and practice in Conflicts must reengage with one another, and offer a framework for further research.
