JurisDiversitas is very pleased to announce that it has recently agreed a contract with Ashgate Publishing (UK) for a Juris Diversitas Book Series.
More information will be available in the months ahead, but the series is described as follows:
Rooted in comparative law, the Juris Diversitas Series focuses on the interdisciplinary study of legal and normative mixtures and movements. Our interest is in comparison broadly conceived, extending beyond law narrowly understood to related fields. Titles might be geographical or temporal comparisons. They could focus on theory and methodology, substantive law, or legal cultures. They could investigate official or unofficial ‘legalities’, past and present and around the world. And, to effectively cross spatial, temporal, and normative boundaries, inter- and multi-disciplinary research is particularly welcome.
The first volume in the series will be edited by Seán Patrick Donlan and Lukas Heckerdorn-Urscheler. It comes out of the 2012 Juris Diversitas conference co-organised with the Swiss Institute of Comparative Law. The volume, currently entitled Concepts of law: Comparative, Jurisprudential, and Social Science Perspectives, includes the following contributors: Marc Amstutz, Gerhard Anders, Roger Cotterrell, Mariano Croce, Maximillian del Mar, Baudouin Dupret, Julia Eckert, Andrew Halpin, Jaakko Husa, Alessio Lo Giudice, Salvatore Mancuso, Emmanuel Melissaris, Werner Menski, David Nelken, William Twining, Catherine Valcke, and Mark van Hoecke.
While we anticipate publishing future collections (original, conference-based, Festschriften, etc), we’re also very interested in publishing monographs and student texts. Anyone interested in publishing in the Series should contact the General Editor, Seán Patrick Donlan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Note that special arrangements are also being made to provide the members of Juris Diversitas with discounts on publications in the Series.
