Abstract:

"Even local newspapers report on famines, global warming, human rights, the Internet, volatile financial markets, and world sports. Globalisation is news. What does it mean? What are the implications for understanding law? Can one look at law intelligently from a global perspective? This book addresses such issues by asking how traditional Anglo-American legal theory can respond to the challenges of globalisation. His critical, in-depth essays focus on familiar figures, such as Bentham, Holmes, Hart, Dworkin, and Rawls, and on legal pluralism, comparative law, and post-modernism, represented by Santos and Calvino. In this highly readable, imaginative, and challenging work, Twining explores the uses and limitations of our heritage of legal theory in dealing with the complexities of ordering relations at global, international, transnational, regional, national, sub-state, and local levels."--Back cover.
