Abstract

The relationship between public and private international law, the issue of the excellent book under review, has often been addressed. But the question is ever new because it is asked under ever-changing circumstances. First, circumstances differ between countries. In the United States, there has long been a tendency towards unifying public international law and (international) choice of law (which is, tellingly, dealt with in the Restatement for Foreign Relations).
