Oxford Handbook of Transnational Law

«To map this bewildering and evolving legal terrain, we have long needed a thoughtful field guide. This Oxford Handbook provides it, richly and comprehensively detailing the foundations, fields, controversies, and methodologies that populate the myriad overlapping realms of transnational law and drive its vital, ongoing dialogues with legal practice, legal theory, and legal education.»

Om boka

The Oxford Handbook of Transnational Law offers a unique and unparalleled treatment and presentation in the field of Transnational Law that has become one of the most intriguing and innovative developments in legal doctrine, scholarship, theory, and practice today. This in itself constitutes an ambitious editorial project, not only within law and legal doctrine, but also with regard to an increasing interest in an interdisciplinary engagement of law with
social sciences - including sociology, anthropology, political science, geography, and political theory. Closely tied into the substantive transformation that many legal fields are undergoing is the observation that many of these developments are driven by changes in an increasingly global legal practice today.
The concept then, of 'transnational law' aims at capturing the distinctly border- crossing nature even of those legal fields which had for the longest been time been seen as having merely 'domestic' relevance. This shift also requires a conscious effort among law school classroom instructors, casebook authors, and curriculum reformers to adapt their teaching content to these circumstances. As the authors of this Handbook make clear, this adaptation requires a close dialogue between a scholarly
investigation into the transnational 'concept of law' and the challenges faced by practicing lawyers, be that as solicitor, in-house counsel, as judges, or as bureaucrats in a globalized regulatory and socio-economic environment. While the main thrust is on the transnationalization of legal doctrine
and legal theory, with a considerable contribution from and engagement with social sciences, the Handbook features numerous reflections on the relationship between transnational law and legal practice.

«Illustrating the diversity of the subject, the authors effectively render the many nuances in the areas covered accessible to a wide readership. It is truly an amazing effort.»

M Sornarajah, Emeritus Professor of Law, Faculty of Law, National University of Singapore

«Handbooks abound these days, but this is an especially valuable instance of the genre - a book that speaks lucidly and powerfully to our time. Amid so much talk of division and isolation, it reveals the inextricable entanglement of the histories of the Global North and Global South ... For those engaged in research and teaching in all areas of law, politics, social sciences and education, this book offers a welcome fillip - a pick-me-up for every bookshelf and syllabus to which readers are sure to find themselves returning, again and again.»

Fleur Johns, Professor & Australian Research Council Future Fellow, Faculty of Law & Justice, UNSW S

«The Handbook will be a welcome and vital resource for anyone wishing to better understand the study of transnational law as well as the transnational study of law. It will serve as both a reservoir of existing knowledge and as an inspiration to the further development of this ever-changing field.»

Christiana Ochoa, Professor of Law and Class of 1950 Herman B Wells Endowed Professor; Academic Dire

«The Oxford Handbook of Transnational Law is a welcome, timely and notable contribution to an exciting and evolving field of law. The academic pedigree of the editor and contributors to the Handbook is most impressive: this is a talented and thoughtful collection of scholars who are respected leaders in the field.»

Penelope Andrews, Professor of Law and Co-Director, Racial Justice Project, New York Law School; Pre

«Peer Zumbansen has pulled together a remarkably rich collection from an impressive group of scholars with an extraordinary breadth of perspective. I have no doubt that the Handbook's comprehensive treatment—the first of its kind and unparalleled in its ambition—will further define and shape this field, nudging the study of the transnationalization of legal doctrine and legal theory into the mainstream.»

Austen Parrish, Dean and James H. Rudy Professor, Indiana University Bloomington

«The Oxford Handbook of Transnational Law, edited by Peer Zumbansen, provides by far the most complete overlook on Transnational Law ever produced to this date. It covers an extensive variety of legal fields, within a solid theoretical framework and a welcomed insight into methodological issues. Make no mistake, this book is not designed only for those interested in international affairs or global transactions. It is a must read for everyone.»

Benoît Frydman, Professor of Law, Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB); President em., Perelman Centr

«Informed by an impressive wealth of knowledge and a wide range of perspectives and experiences, the contributors presented here have created a highly original and comprehensive compendium that encompasses the forms and functions, traditions and practices of transnational law.»

Günter Frankenberg, Senior Professor, Goethe University, Frankfurt

«This Handbook makes the case that transnational law should be understood as a project, as practice. In doing so, it demonstrates the relevance of transnational approaches to many legal sub-disciplines, and indeed to the understanding of law itself.»

Simon Chesterman, Dean, National University of Singapore Faculty of Law

«The 21st Century has witnessed the resurgence and refinement of ideas about "transnational law" as a family of approaches to the intertwined relations of domestic and international, local and global, public and private, state and non-state, and soft and hard law. Peer Zumbansen has been at the very forefront of this new scholarship for going on two decades, so it is only fitting that he has pulled together this ambitious new Oxford Handbook. It will be, from day one, an influential reference point of first recourse.»
