Monday, August 05, 2013
Professor Richard Ross published an edited volume, Legal Pluralism and Empires, 1500-1850 (with Lauren Benton of NYU). The volume reaches from Peru to New Zealand to Europe to capture the varieties and continuities of legal pluralism and to probe the analytic power of the concept of legal pluralism in the comparative study of empires. For legal scholars, social scientists, and historians, Legal Pluralism and Empires, 1500-1850 maps new approaches to the study of empires and the global history of law.
