Introduction INTRODUCTION This second issue of the ALQ provides varied reading for its subscribers.

Nicholas Angell's article on "Regulation of Business under the Developing Legal System of the United Arab Emirates" serves to illustrate, with full note of the latest developments, the way that the UAE is responding to the challenge of creating a legal infrastructure suitable for both its present and future needs, especially in the commercial and industrial fields. Dr Baker's discussion of "Kuwait: The taxation of international commercial transactions" reminds us that taxes, in whatever form, have to be paid in the oil-rich Gulf States as elsewhere, and this recently researched article is the first of several planned explorations of Middle East tax. Much is now heard of the need for and desirability of written constitutions, and W M Ballantyne's article on "The Constitutions of the Gulf States, a Comparative Study" is thus a timely piece. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Arab Law Quarterly Brill

Abstract

INTRODUCTION This second issue of the ALQ provides varied reading for its subscribers. The welcome accorded the first issue seems, if the Editorial Board are permitted to say so, to justify this broad approach to systems of law so soundly based on the fusion of history, religion and comparative styles, and yet often so inadequately researched and loosely-defined in languages other than Arabic. Nicholas Angell's article on "Regulation of Business under the Developing Legal System of the United Arab Emirates" serves to illustrate, with full note of the latest developments, the way that the UAE is responding to the challenge of creating a legal infrastructure suitable for both its present and future needs, especially in the commercial and industrial fields. Dr Baker's discussion of "Kuwait: The taxation of international commercial transactions" reminds us that taxes, in whatever form, have to be paid in the oil-rich Gulf States as elsewhere, and this recently researched article is the first of several planned explorations of Middle East tax. Much is now heard of the need for and desirability of written constitutions, and W M Ballantyne's article on "The Constitutions of the Gulf States, a Comparative Study" is thus a timely piece.
