An Introduction to Comparative Law first appeared in two volumes in 1987. Volume I discussed the nature of comparative law and then concentrated on a survey of the main features of the major groupings of the world's legal systems, whilst Volume II focused on contract, tort, and unjust enrichment as major departments of private law.

Now published for the first time in paperback, the two volumes have been combined into one to provide a comprehensive guide to the relationship between the world's legal systems. This book is intended for students and scholars of comparative law.
