Short description:

Presents a fresh, contextualised and sophisticated perspective on comparative law for both students and scholars.

Long description:
Comparative Law offers a thorough grounding in the subject for students and scholars alike, covering essential academic discussions and comparative law methodology. It critically debates both traditional and modern approaches to the discipline and uses examples from a range of jurisdictions to give the reader a truly global perspective. Its contextualised and interdisciplinary approach draws on examples from politics, economics and other social sciences to provide an original contribution to topics of comparative law. This new third edition is fully revised to reflect developments in the scholarship and includes two new chapters, balancing the book's structure between comparative law of the past, present and future. Suitable for students taking courses in comparative law and related fields, this book offers a fresh and cosmopolitan perspective on the subject.

'The publication of the third edition of Mathias Siems' excellent Comparative Law is to be greatly welcomed by students and comparative law scholars alike. Siems provides not only clear guidance to the methodology and essential contemporary debates of comparative law, but a truly global perspective.' Professor Paula Giliker, University of Bristol, UK
