This is Book 6 of the trilingual edition and translation (Dutch to English and French) of the Netherlands Civil Code ("Burgerlijk Wetboek"), as it was published in 1990, now sold out and no longer reprinted. Book 6 deals with obligations in general or contracts and torts in common law terminology. In the English translation, special care has been taken to use civil law English, as it is used in Quebec, Scotland, South Africa and Louisiana. It was felt that using civil law terminology will put the common law reader on guard against creating "false friends" between civil law institutions and the more or less corresponding common law ones (such as solidarily liable and jointly and severally liable).
