A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Legal pluralism denotes both the multiple social fields which produce partilly interacting norms and the state s recognition of the many sources of law which constitute its legislation. It advocates a break from traditional legal theory in favour of describing the law from a more sociological and anthropological perspective. The theory of legal pluralism proves a useful tool, offering a challenging avenue for the examination of socio-legal activities. Too often, however, the literature on legal pluralism has failed to place sufficient emphasis on its fundamental theoretical questions. The result of a seminar held in Cairo in December 1996 with contributions by sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists, legal theoreticians, and practising lawyers, Legal Pluralism in the Arab World represents the first comprehensive examination of this phenomenon. This collection of essays attempts to define the notion of legal pluralism from a sociological, anthropological, and theoretical perspective and highlights its connection with particular Arab societies and countries. The work s unique features include * a preface by John Griffiths, one of the most significant voices in the formulation of the theory of legal pluralism; * a broad range of case studies, demonstrating the diversity in formulations of the theory; and * a wide variety of approaches to the subject matter. Legal Pluralism in the Arab World is the only work in existence which addresses the concept of legal pluralism in this particular part of the world in such a systematic manner. These essays significantly enrich the current canon on legal pluralism and offer the reader a unique example of its richness and usefulness. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9789041111050
