Elgar Encyclopedia of Comparative Law Second Edition
  • Jan M Smits, Maastricht University
With updated contributions and several new entries, the second edition of this unique Encyclopedia cements its reputation as the authoritative reference work and an indispensable resource in the field. Wide-ranging and comprehensive in scope, with entries written by noted specialists, the book's range takes in articles on the nature and methodology of comparative law, as well as on specific areas of law (such as administrative law and criminal law) and substantive topics (from accident compensation to unjustified enrichment). In addition, the Encyclopedia contains articles on a selected set of countries’ legal systems and as a whole presents overviews of the current state of affairs.
