“...the first of its kind in trying to assess if there is a distinctive European way of dealing with law and society, and their answer is definitely in the affirmative...a very courageous attempt to tackle many issues and will definitely generate further debate and new research. For this reason only, the volume should be of great interest to the many sociologists of law in Europe, and to the many more interested in this discipline. At the same time its value extends far beyond these two groups, as this volume should be of equal importance to sociologists of law in other parts of the world interested in learning about the European approach in its various dimensions.” – Stephan Parmentier,

“A very comprehensive source of nuanced information and ideas on the sociology of European law.” –

“The contributions to this collection provide food for thought.
This collection and its individual chapters will no doubt be cited by those seeking to get to grips with European ways of law, its problems, its potential and likely future direction for years to come.” – Mark Flear,
European Law Review, Volume 35
