    This examination of the mixed jurisdiction experience makes use of an innovative cross-comparative methodology to provide a wealth of detail on each of the nine countries studied. It identifies the deep resemblances and salient traits of this legal family and the broad analytical overview highlights the family links while providing a detailed individual treatment of each country which reveals their individual personalities. This updated second edition includes two new countries (Botswana and Malta) and the appendices explore all other mixed jurisdictions and contain a special report on Cameroon.

    • Now fully updated and expanded, this in-depth study of the mixed jurisdictions is already established as the leading text in the field and the indispensable guide to understanding mixed jurisdictions

    • Covers nine countries and gives a broad overview and cross-comparative synthesis that will appeal to comparative lawyers, legal pluralists and jurists from each of the nine countries

    • Detailed studies of nine countries reveal the nature of these systems and will appeal to both 'inside' and 'outside' observers interested in one or more of these jurisdictions
