This book aims to capture an exploratory approach to theorising the global legal order. Avoiding any brand loyalty to a particular academic perspective, it brings together scholars who contribute a variety of insights covering quite different topics and viewpoints. It sets itself the target of producing a distinctively legal theory of global phenomena, which is capable of illuminating the path of law as an academic discipline, as it confronts a bewildering array of novel situations and innovative ways of thinking about law. The broad base of perspectives found among the contributors, combined with a helpful commentary from the editors, makes the book an ideal Reader to introduce a subject that is becoming of increasing importance for academics, students and practitioners, in law and related fields.
