About Engaging with Foreign Law

This book presents a developed theory of how national lawyers can approach, understand, and make use of foreign law. Its theme is pursued through a set of detailed essays which look at the courts as well as business practice and, with the help of statistics, demonstrate what type of academic work has any impact on the 'real' world. Engaging with Foreign Law thus aims to carve out a new niche for comparative law in this era of globalisation, and may also be the only book which deals in some depth with both private and public law in countries such as England, Germany, France, South Africa, and the United States.

“Voici donc un livre passionnant, tant par son contenu que par sa forme. D'une écriture élégante mais claire et ferme, d'une liberté de ton réjouissante, il offre au lecteur une méthode fondée sur l'expérience et un trésor d'informations qui le met au fait des derniers développements dans le domaine du droit comparé.” –  P. Marchal, Revue de droit international et de droit comparé, 2009 No. 4

“Markesinis' and Fedtke's excellence of scholarship and breadth of erudition is beyond doubt, and so is the richness of the topics dealt with in Engaging with Foreign Law.” –  Carsten Gerner-Beuerle, King's Law Journal, Vol. 20, Issue 3, 2009
