     The Civil Code is the centerpiece of Colombia’s legal system.  It is divided into four books and a preliminary title.  The Preliminary Title contains provisions on fundamental principles of law, applicable throughout the Civil Code and, as suppletive law, to other Colombian codes, laws, and statutes as well.  Book One contains rules on domicile and family law, including marriage and divorce.  Book Two deals with the law of property, and covers both real and personal property.  Book Three addresses the law of decedents’ estates, wills, and donations inter vivos.  Book Four, by far the most extensive, deals with obligations and contracts, encompassing such varied areas as general contract theory, community property, sales, leases, damages, and the law of torts.                        
     This edition includes legislative enactments in effect as of August 27, 2007, and an introduction and a detailed subject-matter index citing to civil code article numbers.

     The importance of the Civil Code of Spain can hardly be overemphasized.  It contains the fundamental framework of the private substantive law of Spain.  For example, the Civil Code provides basic principles of contracts, torts, damages, family law, property, descent and distribution, and various special contracts such as sales.  In addition, the civil code contains rules on private international law and gap fillers applicable throughout the entire legal order.  Thus, it is perilous to attempt to spot issues and evaluate problems involving any aspect of Spanish law without access to the Civil Code.                       
     For easy reference, this edition includes an introduction and a detailed subject-matter index of both civil and common law terms citing to Civil Code article numbers.                         
     This second edition of Romañach’s 1994 English translation of the Civil Code of Spain has been revised and updated through December 1, 2010, Many of the recent amendments, several of which follow European Union directives, concern important aspects of Private International Law.  This edition also contains a discussion of the same-sex marriage law adopted by the Spanish Parliament.
