520 8  Dr. Gao finds the best provisions and practices in respect
       of the fraud rule in the United States, the United Kingdom,
       Canada, and Australia, and applies these standards to the 
       reformulation of the fraud rule in the PRC. In the process
       he        surveys the entire field of the fraud rule in 
       the law of letters of credit in its substantive aspects, 
       thus going deeper than        mere banking law analyses 
       and revealing, for the benefit of jurists everywhere, the 
       fundamental legal issues that must        underlie all 
       sound judicial reasoning in the area. In more practical 
       terms, this approach also allows judges to meet their     
       essential responsibility - that of giving an answer when a
       case is put before them - with the widest and best 
       possible degree of discernment."--BOOK JACKET. 
520 1  Although the letter of credit is essentially an 
       international nstrument with an age-old pedigree, a 
       troubling number of        serious disputes still founder 
       on national provisions with respect to the fraud rule (or 
       fraud exception). The rule is        embodied in several 
       major international agreements, but its adjudication takes
       place under national statutes in which - in         the 
       opinion of Judge Xiang Gao of the Supreme People's Court 
       of the People's Republic of China (PRC) - a significant 
       degree of further refinement and harmonization is called 
       for."
