Book Review - GINSBURG, T., MONATERI, P.G., ET PARISI, F. (EDS.) CLASSICS IN COMPARATIVE LAW

Mauro Balestrieri

Abstract


The term ‘classic’, when employed in the broad sense, usually designates a prominent example, a product of mastery, in other words something which can serve as role model for its perfection, beauty and authority.

Looking at the recent anthology edited by Tom Ginsburg, Pier Giuseppe Monateri and Francesco Parisi, the first impression is surely this one.

In a huge work of recollection (4 volumes, 2800 pages in all), we assist at the reunion of the most influent milestones in the study of comparative law, with a time span ranging from 1903 to our days. This avant-garde anthology contains indeed more than 70 articles written by the most prominent legal scholars around the globe, all categorized in branches logically connected together and with the remarkable merit of putting in communication the old masters of law with most recent ones.

The contents included in the four volumes vary from private and public law, to legal institutions and methodological approaches, providing in a single view the most eminent articles ever written. Obviously, even if completeness could not have been the realistic scope, the survey gives still an insightful spectrum of the modern era of comparative legal studies.
