This work comprises 24 linked essays by leading transatlantic scholars in international law and the social sciences examining the sociolegal aspects of multi-jurisdictional legal techniques and trans-jurisdictional social phenomena. The contributors bring a range of disciplinary expertises including anthropology, economics, law and sociology to bear on key questions raised by transnational legal processes. The pieces explore legal developments in multiple territories including Africa, Asia, Latin America and the United States. The volume is designed as a general reader for courses on law and globalisation and related studies. The collection is made up of four parts, each addressing a central theme in transnational law and legal action (law-making and compliance), human rights, commerce and governance. The essays discuss such diverse problems as: the role of foreign actors in the ethnic conflicts of Kosovo and Rwanda; the power the United States and the UK wield over international capital markets; and the adaptability of existing public international law to deal with the challenges wrought by globalisation.
