Globalisation and Legal Theory

William Twining

Even local newspapers report on famines, global warming, human rights, the Internet, financial markets, and world sports. Globalisation is news. What are the implications for understanding law? Can one look at law from a global perspective? William Twining addresses these issues by asking how traditional Anglo-American legal theory can respond to the challenges of globalisation.
