Item description for International Tax Primer by Brian J. Arnold & Michael J. McIntyre...
The international aspects of income taxation have become increasingly important as countries worldwide have become more economically integrated. International Tax Primer provides an introduction to the policies that countries seek to advance with their international tax rules, with numerous examples drawn from the practices of both developed and developing countries. It grew out of the authors' work with the OECD in conducting seminars on international tax for tax officials in countries emerging from the collapse of the Soviet Union. The book emphasizes tax treaties and other cooperative arrangements that countries employ to coordinate their income tax systems with the tax systems of their trading partners. International Tax Primer strikes a balance between the specific and the general by illustrating the fundamental principles and structure of international tax with frequent reference to actual practice in a variety of countries. Coverage includes: + the role of the tax adviser; + tax planning techniques; + international double taxation; transfer pricing; + anti-avoidance rules; + tax treaties, including discussion of the OECD and UN Model Treaties; + emerging issues, such as e-commerce and harmful tax competition. The work also offers such practical features as: + an extensive glossary of international tax terms; and + a selected bibliography of international tax reference materials, including a list of periodicals devoted to international tax. Students, government officials, and tax practitioners who may be confronting international tax issues for the first time, as well as experienced international tax practitioners, will find International Tax Primer a helpful articulation of the fundamental principles that arise again and again in this field. The book works as both an introduction and a refresher in an area where issues often prove more complex than they seem and where a return to the basics is often the most helpful means of untangling a multi-layered problem. The second edition provides updates for recent developments and expands the coverage by providing many new examples. A chapter dealing with harmful tax competition, hybrid entities, and the taxation of e-commerce has been added to the book.

Reviews - What do customers think about International Tax Primer?
Primer means primer, but good primer Mar 19, 2008
This book really is for the true beginner in international taxation. If you are a professional, it is probably not the source you are looking for. However, for a person who does not have knowledge in this field or has never practiced, I think it will be a brilliant book to read.
The book in itself is very well structured and very clearly written. I use it a primer for my young associates when they join my firm and have been very pleased with what they learn from it. Once they have read and "metabolized" this book, they are ready to get started, and as far as I know, there is no other work to pick up where this primer leaves the subject.
In other words, this is "only" a primer, but as far as primers go, it is a brilliant one. Buy it if you are a beginner or if you have lots of beginners in your firm.
Truly a good primer Feb 13, 2003
This is the only book I found that actually explained everything in its table of contents in a way that I could understand. This is an excellent book for a total beginner just trying to understand the basic issues of thin capitalization rules, deductions vs. exemptions vs. credits, double taxation, tax sparing, tax havens, etcetera.
