On Common Laws

H. Patrick Glenn

  • Weaves together legal history, legal theory and comparative law in a groundbreaking analysis of the history and continued importance of common laws throughout Europe and the wider world
  • Presents Patrick Glenn's original conception of law which reconciles the idea of international legal cultures with the influence of long-standing traditions and state structures
  • Offers a powerful corrective to state-centred theories of law and law-making that have dominated legal theory since the nineteenth century
