Comparative Law in a Global Context by Professor Werner F. Menski
Book DescriptionNow in its second edition, this textbook presents a critical rethinking of the study of comparative law and legal theory in a globalising world, and proposes an alternative model. It highlights the inadequacies of current Western theoretical approaches in comparative law, international law, legal theory and jurisprudence, especially for studying Asian and African laws, arguing that they are too parochial and eurocentric to meet global challenges. Menski argues for combining modern natural law theories with positivist and socio-legal traditions, building an interactive, triangular concept of legal pluralism. Advocated as the fourth major approach to legal theory, this model is applied in analysing the historical and conceptual development of Hindu law, Muslim law, African laws and Chinese law.

Hindu Law, Paperback (April 2008)
This book contends that contrary to those who proclaimed it dead, Hindu law remains a complex living system that has reached a condition of postmodernity and that, along with Hindu custom and cultural concepts, it continues to play an integral role in legal developments today.
