    University of California Press 1989; US$ 12.95

    Drawing on the evidence of anthropology as well as ancient literature and inscriptions, Gagarin examines the emergence of law in Greece from the 8th through the 6th centuries B.C., that is, from the oral culture of Homer and Hesiod to the written enactment of codes of law in most major cities. more...

  • The Japanese Way of Justiceby David T. Johnson

    Oxford University Press 2001; US$ 114.99

    Criminal proceedings in which people can lose life, liberty, or reputation tell us a great deal about the character of any society. In Japan, it is prosecutors who wield the greatest control over these values and who therefore reveal most clearly the character of the Japanese way of justice. In this book, David T. Johnson portrays Japanese prosecutors... more...

  • Partners for Democracyby Ray A. Moore; Donald L. Robinson

    Oxford University Press 2002; US$ 49.99

    In 1945, Japan surrendered unconditionally to the United States and its allies, thereby planting the seed from which would spring one of the world's most successful and stable democracies. In an age when democracy is often pursued, yet rarely accomplished, in which failed democracies are found throughout Africa, Latin America, and Asia, Japan's transformation... more...

  • Sharecropping in the Yemenby W.J. Donaldson

    BRILL 2000; US$ 173.00

    This text discusses sharecropping in the Yemen against the background of Islamic law and customary law. Sharecropping is interesting in Islam since its basis is ostensibly inconsistent with the Islamic prohibition against transactions involving gharar (risk or uncertainty). more...

  • Law and Development in East and South-East Asiaby Christoph Antons

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 47.95

    During the 1980s and 1990s Asian 'developmental states' attracted much attention in political science and economics literature, but the role of law in the economic development was neglected. It was only after the Asian crisis of 1997 that many analysts began to focus on a lack of regulation and transparency as a major factor triggering the crisis.... more...

    BRILL 2002; US$ 141.00

    In view of the practices of World War II, international society could no longer be under the principles of traditional international law. This work provides a comprehensive treatment of the development of international law and its influence on international relations. more...

  • A history of ancient Near Eastern law. Volume 1by R. Westbrook

    BRILL 2003; US$ 438.00

    The history of law can only begin after the written record of it commences; in the Middle East, that is a few centuries after the advent of writing itself in the fourth millennium BCE. That law is the oldest recorded, and is the foundation of the two great modern Western systems, the Common Law and the Civil Law. In sections covering the next three more...
