First published in 1938, The Legal Aspect of Money has become the foremost authority on the law of money throughout the world. The fifth edition has been revised and updated to include discussion of recent changes in international (especially European) law. Although originally intended primarily as a reference work on the English law of money, the comparative methodology established in the original edition has been maintained, and readers will find the combination of new material plus established scholarship an indispensable guide to the financial and legal systems of the world.The 6th edition edited by Charles Proctor is also available with ISBN 978-0-19-826055-4.

`a book described by central bankers as "the Bible" of international monetary law.' Times Online `virtually canonical' The Times `[has] attained an almost biblical authority' Daily Telegraph `an unrivalled standard work' Sir Leonard Hoffmann, Guardian `It may not be out of place to say a few words about the reputation of this work and its learned author. The Legal Aspect of Money must rank as one of the great legal publications in English of the century ... The erudition is staggering and the amount of literature, legislation and case law surveyed is prodigious. As an essay in comparative law on a highly technical topic it can have few rivals. Of all Mann's copious publications it is the one for which he is best known and will best be remembered.' The Cambridge Law Journal `this book, with its erudite and elegant prose, provides an eloquent memorial to one of the leading English legal scholars of this century ... Dr Mann has strong views which are expressed clearly, often magisterially ... The Legal Aspect of Money remains a monumental work, pre-eminent in its field and a paradigm of the value of comparative legal scholarship. It has much to offer both practitioners and academics.' British Yearbook of International Law
