A Guide to Jurisdiction, Practice and Strategy. Fourth Revised Edition
The new Fourth Revised Edition of International Litigation provides U.S. courts practitioners with a step-by-step guide through international litigation, from pre-litigation considerations (obtaining foreign counsel, jurisdiction, choice of forum, etc.) to enforcement of judgments and arbitral awards.

Supplemented by practical checklists and strategies throughout, solutions are offered to pressing questions:

Does arbitration or litigation afford the better chance for success?
What contract drafting, jurisdictional, or enforcement of judgment issues are posed when a foreign sovereign is a party?
What Act of State immunities apply to sensitive sovereign or political issues?
What motions to dismiss or other procedural issues should be anticipated?
Can international differences in service of process, evidence gathering, and jurisdictional points improve or jeopardize the chances for success?
The papers of this volume originated in a workshop held at the University of Notre Dame in February 2004 to discuss the variety of ways one might read Michael Psellos (1018-after 1081?). One of most original figures of Byzantine intellectual history, Psellos was a polymath whose range extended from rhetoric and philosophy to law and medicine. While his history of his own times, the Chronographia, is one of the best known works of Byzantine literature, very little else of his large body of work has been translated. It is the intention of this volume to encourage a wider awareness of Psellos' many interests by offering readings of his original texts from a variety of scholarly perspectives.
Given the enduring importance of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, it is remarkable to find that there is no extensive surviving commentary on this text from the period between the second century and the twelfth century. This volume is focused on the first of the medieval commentaries, that produced in the early twelfth century by Eustratios of Nicaea, Michael of Ephesus, and an anonymous author in Constantinople. This endeavor was to have a significant impact on the reception of the Nicomachean Ethics in Latin and Catholic Europe. For, in the mid-thirteenth century, Robert Grosseteste translated into Latin a manuscript that contained these Byzantine commentators. Both Albertus Magnus and Bonaventure then used this translation as a basis for their discussions of Aristotle's book.
