Comparative Law : Mixes, Movements, and Metaphors, Hardback Book

Comparative Law : Mixes, Movements, and Metaphors Hardback

Edited by Sean Patrick Donlan, Jane Mair

Part of the Juris Diversitas series


This book discusses a number of important themes in comparative law: legal metaphors and methodology, the movements of legal ideas and institutions and the mixity they produce, and marriage, an area of law in which culture - or clashes of legal and public cultures - may be particularly evident.

In a mix of methodological and empirical investigations divided by these themes, the work offers expanded analyses and a unique cross-section of materials that is on the cutting edge of comparative law scholarship.

It presents an innovative approach to legal pluralism, the study of mixed jurisdictions, and language and the law, with the use of metaphors not as an illustration but as a core element of comparative methodology.
