  2. Comparative Law and Anthropology

    Comparative Law and Anthropology

    Edited by James A.R. Nafziger
    The topical chapters in this cutting-edge collection at the intersection of comparative law and anthropology explore the mutually enriching insights and outlooks of the two fields. Comparative Law and Anthropology adopts a foundational approach to social and cultural issues and their resolution, rather than relying on unified paradigms of research or unified objects of study. Taken together, the contributions extend long-developing trends from legal anthropology to an anthropology of law and from externally imposed to internally generated interpretations of norms and processes of legal significance within particular cultures. The book's expansive conceptualization of comparative law encompasses not only its traditional geographical orientation, but also historical and jurisprudential dimensions. It is also noteworthy in blending the expertise of long-established, acclaimed scholars with new voices from a range of disciplines and backgrounds. Learn More

  3. Research Handbook on State Aid in the Banking Sector

    Research Handbook on State Aid in the Banking Sector

    Edited by François-Charles Laprévote, Joanna Gray, Francesco De Cecco
    Before the global financial crisis, EU/EEA state aid law and financial regulation were entirely separate domains that rarely met. The close encounters between these areas brought about by the financial crisis have resulted in interactions which have not always been smooth or straightforward. The Research Handbook on State Aid in the Banking Sector brings together experts in state aid and in financial regulation, drawn from legal academia, legal practice, economics, and from the EU and EEA institutions to shed light on this relationship. The editors and expert contributors do this by elucidating key concepts that underpin the application of state aid law to banks, and by considering specific aspects of the interface between state aid and financial regulation. The Handbook's analysis is complemented by a number of key country-based case studies, and by a concluding section which takes stock of the Banking Union’s package of legislative/regulatory reforms and reflects on the possible future role of state aid in this sector.

    Comparative Contract Law

Together with an original introduction by the editor this compilation of classic key papers by leading scholars endeavours to facilitate such appreciation and will prove an essential reference point for students, researchers and policymakers.

  16. Methodologies of Law and Economics

    Methodologies of Law and Economics

    Edited by Thomas S. Ulen
    When law and economics first appeared, it was a relatively straightforward application of microeconomic theory to legal issues. However, in the past 35 years the field has expanded its toolkit dramatically. This latest volume in the acclaimed Encyclopedia of Law and Economics maps the methodological territory in Law and Economics, with a series of entries by distinguished scholars that introduce and evaluate that expansive toolkit, including the roles of microeconomic theory, public choice, social choice, history, complexity theory, philosophy, comparative law studies, behavioral economics, and empirical techniques. Each piece introduces the technique, demonstrates its importance to the field of law and economics, and assists the reader in navigating the leading literature on that topic. Learn More
