Einhorn's (2009) was the first comprehensive publication on the Israeli conflict of laws in English. The second edition, published during 2012, is a wholly updated and expanded version of the first. While the original edition comprised 393 pages, the second edition runs to 552, so as to make provision for additional topics (for instance, economic conflict-of-law rules (66-67) and the recognition and enforcement of judgments based on arbitral awards (465-471)) and the many changes in Israeli private international law since 2009. The author provides the reader with a lucid restatement of the hybrid and uncodified positive conflict of laws in Israel, of which the most sources are only available in Hebrew, be it case law or legislation. She not only "untangles the web of Israeli sources of law affecting foreign legal relationships" (back cover), but also provides guidance on the further development of the law on the basis of comparative research, mainly referring to German, Swiss, English and European private international law.
