Summary "The first of its kind, this comprehensive Encyclopedia on comparative law takes stock of present day comparative law scholarship. Written by authorities in their respective fields, the contributions in this book cover and combine not only questions regarding the methodology of comparative law, but also specific areas of law (such as administrative law and criminal law) and specific topics (such as accident compensation and consideration). In addition, the Encyclopedia contains reports on a selected set of countries, legal systems, and as a whole presents an overview of the current state of affairs. Providing its readers with a unique point of reference, as well as stimulus for further research, this volume is an indispensable tool for anyone interested in comparative law, especially students and scholars."--BOOK JACKET.
