Description of this Book

This book discusses a number of important themes in comparative law: legal metaphors and methodology, the movements of legal ideas and institutions and the mixity they produce, and marriage, an area of law in which culture - or clashes of legal and public cultures - may be particularly evident. In a mix of methodological and empirical investigations divided by these themes, the work offers expanded analyses and a unique cross-section of materials that is on the cutting edge of comparative law scholarship. It presents an innovative approach to legal pluralism, the study of mixed jurisdictions, and to language and the law, with the use of metaphors not as illustration but core element of comparative methodology.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'This book should be on the shelf of every serious comparative law lawyer. It pays homage to a great scholar, Esin OErucu, and her interdisciplinary approaches to comparative law. Law is on the move and there is nothing we can do to stop it; we need to embrace it. The contributions in this collection reopens old debates and conceive new ones but the end message is united; law is a messy affair and there is no one size fits all.' Christa Rautenbach, Faculty of Law, North-West University, Potchefstroom, South Africa
