There is a bookreview in Dutch on this book by a befriended brother: http://www.msvnijmegen.nl/blog/index.php?/archives/93-al-Fiqh-al-Akbar.html

3.) One of the first, if not the first, English translations by Wensinck, a Dutch orientalist under the title “The Muslim Creed”, which can be downloaded as PDF here:  http://www.archive.org/details/630_The.Muslim.Creed

A summarized review of this book can be read here: http://www.iph.ras.ru/~orient/win/publictn/texts/fa_sum.htm

7.) A book review on the English translation under nr. 2. from Seekingilm: http://www.seekingilm.com/ilm/archives/218 

There seems to be some debate about the question if this is really the work of imam Abu Hanifah, these questions are answered in the translation under nr. 2 so buy and read that book I’d say!
