"An authoritative practioners' guide to the workings of international trusts....the book works efficiently as a research tool....will certainly enhance one's understanding of trusts in general and international trusts in particular..... if you practice in the area of internatioanl trest law, this new third edition of 'The International Trust' is a must have purchase."Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
Once again the material in the book is largely derived from contributions to the loose-leaf encyclopaedia International Trust Laws.
Except where otherwise stated chapters appearing in the last edition have been revised by their original authors, on varying dates, for the current edition. Sadly, John Glasson and Geraint Thomas have retired from editing the book so that I have taken over from them. The views of authors of chapters are of course their views alone, while in Chapter 10 that I revised my views are provisional views reached via the process of authorship without the benefit of the testing forensic argument that there is in the courts.
Although this book was produced mainly with practitioners in mind, it is hoped that university law departments will also find the book of value. As appears from the ‘Introductory Notes: The Phenonmenon of the International Trust’, the strengths and weaknesses of domestic English law become apparent when seeing how offshore jurisdictions have enacted legislation to develop their laws, while English conflict of laws may recognise trusts that are very different from domestic English trusts. Query the extent to which it is possible to create a foreign trust and subsequently graft on to it English elements (pursuant to express powers in that behalf) so as to achieve indirectly what could not be achieved directly.
Our warmest thanks go to our contributors, and to all at Jordans.
