Brill Archive, Jan 1, 2003 - Law - 572 pages
This massive work represents the labour of hundreds of lawyers and scholars throughout the world. It is undoubtedly the most extensive and through examination of comparative law on the international level ever published. It incorporates not only detailed descriptions of the legal systems of more than 150 countries but, above all, thoroughly documented comparative analyses of the main issues in civil and commercial law and related issues world-wide. Consisting of 17 volumes in total, each volume is divided into 6-20 chapters written by relevant specialists. Rather than delaying publication until the volume is complete, every chapter is published on completion in paperback form. Several of these chapters, not necessarily of the same volume, are sent to subscribers in single instalments 2 to 4 times a year. Once all the chapters in a given volume are ready, they are indexed, updated where necessary and sent to subscribers in high-quality hardback form.
