    • Reflects increasing anti-corruption activity
    • Includes recent writing on neuroscience and law
    • Rejects the concept of nation-state in favour of that of the cosmopolitan state

    Legal Traditions of the World places national laws 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. The concept of legal tradition is explained as non-conflictual in character and compatible with new and inclusive forms of logic.

    Readership: Suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate comparative law courses worldwide. Also of interest to students of legal history, legal philosophy, international development, international human rights and international business.

  • 1: A theory of tradition? The changing presence of the past
    2: Between traditions: identity, persuasion and survival
    3: A chthonic legal tradition: to recycle the world
    4: A talmudic legal tradition: the perfect author
    5: A civil law tradition: the centrality of the person
    6: An islamic legal tradition: the law of the later revelation
    7: A common law tradition: the ethic of adjudication
    8: A hindu legal tradition: the law of king, but which law?
    9: A confucian legal tradition: make it new (with Marx?)
    10: Reconciling legal traditions: sustainable diversity in law
