Awareness of the need to deepen the method and methodology of legal research is only recent. The same is true for comparative law, by nature a more adventurous branch of legal research, which is often something researchers simply do, whenever they look at foreign legal systems to answer one or more of a range of questions about law, whether these questions are doctrinal, economic, sociological, etc. Given the diversity of comparative research projects, the precise contours of the methods employed, or the epistemological issues raised by them, are to a great extent a function of the nature of the research questions asked. As a result, the search for a unique, one-size-fits-all comparative law methodology is unlikely to be fruitful. That however does not make reflection on the method and culture of comparative law meaningless. Mark Van Hoecke has, throughout his career, been interested in many topics, but legal theory, comparative law and methodology of law stand out. Building upon his work, this book brings together a group of leading authors working at the crossroads of these themes: the method and culture of comparative law. With contributions by: Maurice Adams, John Bell, Joxerramon Bengoetxea, Roger Brownsword, Sean Patrick Donlan, Rob van Gestel and Hans Micklitz, Patrick Glenn, Jaap Hage, Dirk Heirbaut, Jaakko Husa, Souichirou Kozuka and Luke Nottage, Martin Lohnig, Susan Millns, Toon Moonen, Francois Ost, Heikki Pihlajamaki, Geoffrey Samuel, Mathias Siems, Jorn Oyrehagen Sunde, Catherine Valcke and Matthew Grellette, Alain Wijffels.

The first book in decades to explore the historical, jurisprudential, and methodological foundations of modern comparative legal studies in the former Soviet Union, it is without precedent there in its breadth of authorship and methodological originality. For the western reader it constitutes a thoroughly representative introduction to the New Wave of comparative legal studies on the territory of the Independent States. Some issues that engage comparatists there are long familiar in the West; others are relatively new to the field in general, usually with an unusual twist generated by Eastern experience or philosophical disposition. Individual chapters address the periodization of comparative law, the place of Russia and Ukraine on the legal map of the world, the renaissance of Slavonic law, canon law, convergence between Anglo-American and Romano-Germanic legal systems, the integrating role of international law, and various approaches to typologies of modern legal systems.

Presenting a critique of conventional methods in comparative law, this book argues that, for comparative law to qualify as a discipline, comparatists must reflect on how and why they make comparisons. Gunter Frankenberg discusses not only methods and theories but also the ethical implications and the politics of comparative law in order to bring out the different dimensions of the discipline.Comparative Law as Critique offers various approaches that turn on the academic discourse of comparative law, including analysis of a widespread spirit of innocence in terms of method, and critique of human rights narratives. It also analyses how courts negotiate differences between cases regarding Muslim veiling. Gunter Frankenberg presents varied critical projects that discuss methods and theories, ethics and the politics of comparative law to bring out the different dimensions of the discipline.The incisive critiques and comparisons in this book will make essential reading for comparatists working in legal education and research as well as students of comparative law and scholars in comparative anthropology and social sciences.
