About Theorising the Global Legal Order

This book aims to capture an exploratory approach to theorising the global legal order. Avoiding any brand loyalty to a particular academic perspective, it brings together scholars who contribute a variety of insights covering quite different topics and viewpoints. It sets itself the target of producing a distinctively legal theory of global phenomena, which is capable of illuminating the path of law as an academic discipline, as it confronts a bewildering array of novel situations and innovative ways of thinking about law. The broad base of perspectives found among the contributors, combined with a helpful commentary from the editors, makes the book an ideal Reader to introduce a subject that is becoming of increasing importance for academics, students and practitioners, in law and related fields.

“... a rich and wide-ranging illustration of why the transnational legal world stands in need of its own body of theory that is distinct from more traditional approaches...[and] a welcome and constructive contribution to the development of the field of transnational legal theory.” –  Sidney Richards, Cambridge Law Journal

“...the chapters, taken together...provide some throughtful and stimulating insights into how the global order might best be understood, and into the difficulties of joining those insights into a coherent understanding of its character.

...this book provides the reader with an introduction to theories of global law, injects case studies that cast light on the processes through which it may develop, and engages periodically in helpful critiques of the notion of a global legal order and its mechanisms.

” –  Spencer Zifcak, Law and Politics Book Review
