The Loneliness of the Comparative Lawyer

ISBN13: 9789041112156
ISBN: 9041112154
Published: June 2001
Publisher: Kluwer Law International
Format: Hardback
Price: £184.00

In these critical essays, a comparative lawyer examines the movement for convergence of the Civil Law and the Common Law, describes the Italian style and the French deviation, contrasts Common Law estate with Civil Law ownership, and explains why the distinction between public law and private law is important to Civil Lawyers but has little interest for Common Lawyers. The book also proposes a marriage of comparative law and scientific explanation, and emphasizes the fundamental relation between law and social and cultural change.
