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.
