The highlight on any local private international law calendar is beyond doubt the publication of a new edition of Christopher Forsyth's standard textbook on the Roman-Dutch conflict of laws as applicable in South Africa and most of its neighbouring countries (Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, Swaziland and Zimbabwe), as well as in Sri Lanka. Upon its initial appearance in 1981, this was the first comprehensive text on the subject to be published since Paulus Voet's in 1661 (for a translation, see AB Edwards (2007)).
