This book presents a fresh contextualized and cosmopolitan perspective on comparative law. It critically discusses established approaches to comparative law, but also presents more modern ones, such as socio-legal and empirical comparative law. Special emphasis is given to the impact of globalization on legal systems. It also explains how other disciplines make comparative law richer by using new methods and extending it to new questions. More information about the book is available HERE.
