Welcome, Jedidiah Kroncke!

We are pleased to announce that Jedidiah Kroncke will be joining us as a guest blogger for the next month.

Professor Kroncke is on the faculty at FGV Direito SP in São Paulo, Brazil, where he teaches courses ranging from Comparative Law to Socio-Legal Studies. Prior to that position, he held a series of prestigious fellowships, including at Harvard Law School, New York University Law School, and Yale Law School. He holds a J.D. from Yale Law School and a Ph.D. in Social and Cultural Anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley.

He is the author, most recently, of The Futility of Law and Development: China and the Dangers of Exporting American Law (Oxford University Press, 2016), which explores the role of U.S.-China relations in the formation of modern American legal internationalism and the decline of American legal comparativism. Other previous and forthcoming work focuses on the history of legal transplantation, comparative constitutionalism, law and development, comparative labor law, and "economic republicanism." His next book project is on the transnational history of American legal education.
