    This thought provoking introduction to the study of comparative law provides in-depth analyses of all major comparative methodologies and theories and serves as a common sense guide to the study of foreign legal systems. It is written in a lively and accessible style and will prove indispensable reading to advanced students of the subject. It also contains much that will be of interest to comparative law scholars, offering novel insights into commonplace methodological and theoretical questions and making a significant contribution to the field.

    "Professor Jaakko Husa is one of the very few people who is able to act as a reliable guide in the vigorous debates in comparative legal scholarship. In this volume he provides the legal scholar with a sensible and sensitive overview of the schools, themes, problems and challenges when 'doing' comparative law. He objectively examines the themes and problems in comparative law in a way that both elevates the scholarly debate and provides an illuminating introduction for beginners. We should be very grateful to him for that!"
    Maurice Adams, Full Professor of Law at Tilburg University.

    "Jaakko Husa's new book presents a major contribution to modern comparative law. It benefits from the author's profound knowledge in matters of comparative law, both in terms of the method of comparison and examples from many parts of the world. The book also has a strong didactic element: it is the best one on the market that explains core discussions to aspiring comparative lawyers. An important innovation is that it firmly puts the concept of legal culture to the centre of a comparative law textbook. It is to be applauded that this is done in a diplomatic way, not trying to impose a particular position but rather to convince the readers that the author's approach is a beneficial way forward. This book will certainly be well received by both students and scholars."
    Mathias Siems, Professor of Commercial Law at Durham University.

    "Jaakko Husa’s new book provides a delightful and fresh approach to the comparative study of law. Written by one of the world’s leading comparatists, Husa shows the way to how to do meaningful and stimulating comparative legal work. A must-read for any legal academic."
    Jan Smits, Chair of European Private Law, Maastricht University

  • Jaakko Husa is Professor of Comparative Law and Constitutional Law at the University of Lapland. He has held professorial chairs in various fields of law including public law, legal linguistics, legal culture and jurisprudence.
