Comparative Legal History: A Research Handbook

Edward Elgar has published Comparative Legal History, edited by Olivier Moréteau, Louisiana State University, Aniceto Masferrer, University of Valencia, and Kjell A. Modéer, University of Lund.  It is the latest in Elgar's series of Research Handbooks in Comparative Law.
The specially commissioned papers in this book lay a solid theoretical foundation for comparative legal history as a distinct academic discipline. While facilitating a much needed dialogue between comparatists and legal historians, this research handbook examines methodologies in this emerging field and reconsiders legal concepts and institutions like custom, civil procedure, and codification from a comparative legal history perspective.
