Reviews From The Previous Edition: "The book that needed to be written." --American Journal of Comparative Law "An effective antidote to the clash of civilizations." --Recht und Verfassung Ubersee "Illuminating and ground breaking work." --Stellenbosch Law Review "Glenn has succeeded magnificently." --Cambridge Law Journal "An opus extra ordinem." --European Review of Private Law "Sheer academic brilliance." --Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law "This text is learned (with amazing footnotes and a bibliography after almost every chapter) and very thought provoking." --Penny Booth, Times Higher Education SupplementReseña del editor:
This prize-winning work offers a major new means of conceptualizing law and legal relations across the world. National laws are placed in the broader context of major legal traditions, those of chthonic (or indigenous) law, talmudic law, civil law, islamic law, common law, hindu law and confucian law. Each tradition is examined in terms of its institutions and substantive law, its founding concepts and methods, its attitude towards the concept of change and its teaching on relations with other traditions and peoples. Legal traditions are explained in terms of multivalent and non-conflictual forms of logic and thought.
This book will be invaluable to law students and lawyers engaged in comparative or transnational work, historians, social scientists, and all those interested in the legal traditions that underpin the world's major societies.
