Excerpt from The German Civil Code: Translated and Annotated, With an Historical Introduction and Appendices
Nor is the German Code of more academic interest to the English-speaking peoples. Both England and America are closely connected with Germany - the former commercially, by its proximity to the Continent; the latter socially, by the great influx of German im migrants ia recent years. In this age of international intercourse, cases involving the conflict of laws come up from time to time, and it is not an uncommon thing for an English or American Court to be called upon to decide a question of German law. To place in the hands of English-speaking lawyers a reliable rendering of the Code is my object in undertaking this task. How far this object has been attained will depend upon the judgment of the profession.
