On behalf of LexisNexis and the Graduate Tax Series Board of Editors (Ellen Aprill (Loyola-L.A.), Elliott Manning (Miami), Philip Postlewaite (Northwestern) & David Richardson (Florida)), I am delighted to announced the publication of United States International Taxation (2008), by Allison Christians (Wisconsin), Samuel Donaldson (Washington) & Philip Postlewaite (Northwestern). The book is the successor to International Taxation: Cases, Materials, and Problems (Anderson, 1999), by Philip Postlewaite (Northwestern) & Samuel Donaldson (Washington).
The Graduate Tax Series is the first series of course materials designed for use in tax LL.M. programs. Like all books in the Series, United States International Taxation was designed from the ground-up with the needs of graduate tax faculty and students in mind:
- More focus on Internal Revenue Code and regulations, less on case law
- Analysis of complex, practice-oriented problems of increasing sophistication
- Teacher’s manual with solutions to problems and other guidance
- On-line access to the comprehensive and current Code and regulations, designed to complement the book
Four other books in the Series also are available for adoption now:
- Civil Tax Procedure (2d ed. 2007), by David Richardson (Florida), Jerome Borison (Denver), and Steve Johnson (UNLV).
- Employee Benefits Law: Qualification Rules and ERISA Requirements (2006), by Kathryn Kennedy (John Marshall) & Paul Shultz (Director, Employee Plans Rulings & Agreement, IRS)

- Partnership Taxation (2d ed. 2008), by Richard Lipton (Baker & McKenzie, Chicago), Paul Carman (Chapman & Cutler, Chicago), Charles Fassler (Greenebaum, Doll & McDonald, Louisville) & Walter Schwidetzky (Baltimore).
