This short book on comparative law theory and method is designed primarily for postgraduate research students whose work involves comparison between legal systems. It is, accordingly, a book on research methods, although it will also be of relevance to all students (undergraduate and postgraduate) taking courses in comparative law and to academics entering the field of comparison. The substance of the book has been developed over many years of teaching general theory of comparative law, primarily on the European Academy of Legal Theory programme in Brussels but also on other programmes in French, Belgian and English universities. It is arguable that there has been to date no single introductory work exclusively devoted to comparative law methodology and thus this present book aims to fill this gap.

First published in 1946, this book formed part of the Cambridge Studies in International and Comparative Law series. The text was written with three key aims: to explain the origin and meaning of comparative law; to describe the purposes for which the comparative method of legal study can be utilised; and to estimate the value of comparative law as an instrument for the growth and development of the law. Tables of cases and statutes are included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in comparative law and legal history.

In today's globalized world, jurists cannot limit themselves to studying the laws of their own country. This book is mainly intended to be used as a textbook for beginners taking introductory courses on foreign and comparative law. Its concise format makes it fit for use also in other courses, such as legal history or jurisprudence, having the ambition to provide the students with a basic knowledge about English, American, French, German, Chinese and Islamic law and legal culture, as well as about the methodological problems that arise in connection with studying, comparing and working with foreign legal systems in general. The book will hopefully also be useful as a spring-board towards more profound studies by students and others seeking more advanced knowledge. Michael Bogdan is Professor of Comparative and Private International Law at the University of Lund, Sweden.
