. . . the book is enlightening for practitioners who are often required to take into account global considerations when advising clients. . . It would be of particular interest to policy-makers in the intellectual property field. Australian Intellectual Property Law Bulletin Dutfield and Suthersanen have skillfully captured in one concise volume all the important things you need to know about international intellectual property law. The materials are accessible, timely, methodically presented and at times critical. The book s detailed, in-depth and comparative analyses provide helpful insights into the increasingly complex international intellectual property system. Global Intellectual Property Law is not only an effective textbook for students interested in the subject, but a desktop companion for policymakers and professionals who need a quick and up-to-date overview of global intellectual property issues. Peter K. Yu, Drake University, US and Zhongnan University of Economics and Law, China Today global intellectual property rules affect everything from poor people s access to essential medicines to farmers rights in seeds to access to knowledge on the Internet. But at the same time that pundits declare that intellectual property has come of age, this body of law is more contested than ever, with critics asking whether intellectual property is even necessary to stimulate innovation, and whether and how intellectual property ought to be tailored to address the health and developmental needs of the global South. Dutfield and Suthersanen s Global Intellectual Property Law is a timely and lucid contribution to the field. This tome covers every hot button area of international intellectual property law and policy, from debates over the affect of intellectual property on development, to controversy over biotechnology and property rights in life, to claims by indigenous people and developing countries for new property rights in traditional knowledge. Dutfield and Suthersanen describe the current terrain, comparing North American, European, and developing world approaches; much to their credit, they do not shy away from describing points of tension among global actors. Global Intellectual Property Law is a must have for scholars and practitioners in the field for whom, I anticipate, the book will become a trusted and oft-used reference on their bookshelf. The book is clearly written and engaging enough to be perfect for students or laypersons interested in acquiring a comprehensive and critical appraisal of the field. Madhavi Sunder, University of California, Davis, US Dutfield and Suthersanen have succeeded in writing an engaging treatise that offers a truly modern perspective on intellectual property today. With examples from every continent, from every level of jurisdiction (national, regional, international), their study covers all the traditional fundamentals of intellectual property law as well as the current critical interrogations that their development raises. It is a book with character. Ysolde Gendreau, Université de Montréal, Canada Global Intellectual Property Law by Dutfield and Suthersanen provides a broad overview of the issues at stake concerning fair and effective ways to organize the information resources upon which the well-being of us all depends. The book highlights international and comparative perspectives on IP law and policy. Although primarily targeted at postgraduate level students, the book is enlightening also for practitioners, and a must-read for all policy makers and opinion leaders in the IP field. Thomas Dreier, University of Karlsruhe, Germany Globalisation of trade means that intangible informational resources are now produced, bartered and consumed anywhere and everywhere defying jurisdictional borders. Intellectual property has moved into the mainstream of national economic and developmental planning; in the recent past it has also emerged as the central impetus in multilateral

If handbooks can be inspiring, this is it! Like a true companion, it takes in its stride conversations both big and small. Its entries do not just present an international and multidisciplinary mix, but true to life they work on several different scales. And, importantly, the book makes its authority evident. For it is like an extended website, but with all the added advantages of an encyclopaedia that actually tells you about the authors and the sources on which they have drawn. The resulting compilation is highly intelligent, thoughtful and above all usable. Dame Marilyn Strathern, University of Cambridge, UK The Elgar Companion to Development Studies is a major production in the development studies field, authored by a star-studded cast of contributors. With 136 entries covering a vast range of topics, it should quickly establish itself as a leading work of reference. We should all feel indebted to David Clark, who has successfully brought this substantial publishing project to completion. John Toye, University of Oxford, UK This is a most comprehensive handbook on development studies. It brings together a wide, varied array of carefully crafted summaries of 136 key topics in development by an international cast of well-respected academics and other experts in respective areas of study. The handbook is heavily interdisciplinary, organically combining economic, political, historical, social, cultural, institutional, ethical, and human aspects of development. While the wide range of entries might appear as a simple glossary listing or an encyclopedic collection, each of the 136 entries offers more depth and discussion than the average handbook. . . . Viewed in this light, this companion is highly likely to become known as a leading reference work on the topic. Highly recommended. Ismael Hossein-Zadeh, Choice The Elgar Companion to Development Studies is an innovative and unique reference book that includes original contributions covering development economics as well as development studies broadly defined. This major new Companion brings together an international panel of experts from varying backgrounds who discuss theoretical, ethical and practical issues relating to economic, social, cultural, institutional, political and human aspects of development in poor countries. It also includes a selection of intellectual biographies of leading development thinkers. While the Companion is organised along the lines of an encyclopaedia, each of its 136 entries provide more depth and discussion than the average reference book. Its entries are also extremely diverse: they draw on different social science disciplines, incorporate various mixes of theoretical and applied work, embrace a variety of methodologies and represent different views of the world. The Elgar Companion to Development Studies will therefore appeal to students, scholars, researchers, policymakers and practitioners in the filed of development as well as the interested layman.

Kuk Cho and his colleagues are to be heartily commended for masterfully advancing understanding of Korea s legal system through Litigation in Korea. In this impressive volume, Professor Cho and ten talented scholars from leading Korean universities explore the full spectrum of major forms of litigation in Korea, including civil, criminal, constitutional, administrative, and patent litigation. Foreign readers will be pleased to know that while the papers are well grounded doctrinally, several also deftly explore issues of law and society. Anyone interested in litigation in Korea will be very grateful for this fine volume. William Alford, Harvard Law School, US This is a path-breaking volume. Covering a wide range of topics in both public and private law litigation in Korea, the authors utilize both black letter and more theoretical approaches to provide a comprehensive overview of the law. The book will be required reading for anyone wanting to understand the Korean legal system today. Tom Ginsburg, Chicago Law School, US This informative book provides an overview of the law and judicial institutions pertaining to litigation in Korea, as well as a selection of important court decisions. Throughout Korea s democratization process, litigation has played a crucial role as an instrument to solve most of the challenging civic and social conflicts which in turn have ramifications in the nation s political, constitutional, societal and cultural domains. The expert contributors explore civil procedure, criminal procedure, constitutional adjudication, administrative litigation, and patent litigation in the Republic of Korea. As the first publication in the English language to provide a comprehensive picture of litigation in Korea, this book will appeal to scholars and post-graduate students in Asian studies, as well as lawyers dealing with Korea-related cases.
