2016 is a momentous year for EEP as we celebrate 30 years of independent, academic publishing. In 1986 our Chairman, Edward Elgar, founded the company with the vision of creating a publishing house that attracted high quality books by offering a superior service to authors.
Edward Elgar Publishing was conceived as an international scholarly press and from the beginning our sales were derived equally from Europe, North America and Asia Pacific regions, reflecting our author base and focus on topics of global interest. Today the Middle East, Latin America and a number of African countries are also important markets.
Published in four-volumes, Jens Scherpe, Britain’s leading comparative family law scholar, demonstrates his expertise in this definitive work. The set maps the emerging European family law and through its comparative analysis, will serve as a major resource for anyone interested in this area. Topics include: marriage, divorce, cohabitation, same-sex relationships, the financial consequence of divorce, adoption, parentage and surrogacy, parental responsibility, the child’s welfare, and law concerning older people.

‘Hans-Peter Brunner has produced here a thoughtful piece of scholarship. This important book is genuinely innovative and very well executed. It addresses a significant problem – how the integration and inter-linkage of national markets through regional cooperation and integration adds to productivity growth.’
– Kislaya Prasad, University of Maryland, College Park, US
Authors from over 90 countries contributed to Elgar books and journals last year.
