Critical Acclaim
‘This magisterial study shows a deep understanding of the methods of comparative law which will be useful to veterans in the field and yet accessible to newcomers. Monateri achieves the difficult task of presenting the approaches of each scholar faithfully while weaving them into a synthetic account of the development of comparative law that places each in the intellectual and political context of its day.’
– James Gordley, Tulane Law School, New Orleans, US

‘Pier Guiseppe Monateri is one of Europe’s most learned jurists, fluent in his knowledge of languages (ancient and modern), legal and political history, legal theory and comparative law in all its aspects. He is equally an original thinker which makes this advanced introduction to comparative law method much more than an introduction. Not only does it cover all the existing debates with clarity and in a critical manner, but it also proposes some important ideas. For example, the author invites the reader to rethink the nature and role of Roman law within the Western tradition; and he suggests that quantitative methods might well provide a more viable alternative to the slippery and often biased qualitative terms employed in many of the methodological debates. No comparative law student should be without this excellent book.’
– Geoffrey Samuel, Professor Emeritus, Kent Law School, UK

‘There is something about comparative law that crystallizes more intellectual controversy, or perhaps a stronger hermeneutic of suspicion, than other legal fields. Focusing on legal methods (rather than content, traditions, cultures or systems), Monateri’s Advanced Introduction provides the key. It is as if contemporary comparative legal studies, linking up with critical strands of legal thought and multiple interdisciplinary approaches, has dethroned jurisprudence or legal philosophy as the most visible and stimulating forum for discussing ideas about the law.’
– Horatia Muir Watt, SciencesPo Law School, Paris, France
