  1. George P. Fletcher (2007). The Grammar of Criminal Law: American, Comparative, and International. Oxford University Press.score: 210.0
    The Grammar of Criminal Law is a 3-volume work that addresses the field of international and comparative criminal law, with its primary focus on the issues of international concern, ranging from genocide, to domestic efforts to combat terrorism, to torture, and to other international crimes. The first volume is devoted to foundational issues. The Grammar of Criminal Law is unique in its systematic emphasis on the relationship between language and legal theory; there is no comparable comparative study of (...)

  5. Richard Brooks, The Cultivation of Cosmopolitan Detachment in Comparative Law: The Hellenistic Contributions.score: 180.0
    This article explores the kind of detachment needed to conduct comparative law scholarship and teaching, as well as implement its application to practical problems. The full and fair comparison of the law requires a cosmopolitan view which embodies some degree of detachment from adherence to the laws of one's ``home". The Enlightenment efforts to build a science of comparative law to achieve this detachment failed. Modern inheritors of the Enlightenment approach have similarly failed. In a series of articles, (...)

    Gifts: A Study in Comparative Law is the first broad-based study of the law governing the giving and revocation of gifts ever attempted. First, gift-giving is everywhere governed by social and customary norms before it encounters the law. Second, the giving of gifts takes place largely outside of the marketplace. As a result of these two characteristics, the law of gifts provides an optimal lens through which to examine how different legal systems confront social practice. The law of gifts (...)

    On one level, the focus of The Limits of Criminal Law is captured by its title—the book is concerned with the legitimate boundaries of the criminal law. Lauterwein sets out different approaches to this topic in the German and Australian legal contexts. The book does not formally adopt a comparative methodology, but rather presents ‘an analysis using contextual and comparative elements’ (p. 45). He concentrates on analysing discussion of the limits of the criminal law in Australia, using the (...)

    Recent theoretical analysis has exhibited a structural ambiguity in the normative foundation of the tort of negligence, namely uncertainty whether liability is based on the breach of a legal duty or on the responsibility for the victim's loss. This normative ambiguity is due to the fact that the European law of extracontractual liability was conceptually framed for purposes totally different from modern ideas of fair distribution of risks that have historically been connected with rights- based conceptions of tort law. From (...)

    Any choice of a state for a cross-border insolvency regime involves a trade-off between increased cross-border economic activity and application of less-preferred substantive insolvency law. A state may be relatively more dependent (‘dependent state’) on the economy of another, less dependent, state (‘dominant state’) than vice versa. This article shows that the dependent state, to increase its gains from cross-border economic activity, has an interest in the dominant state applying territorialism. Applying unilateral universalism vis-à-vis the dominant state, the dependent state (...)

    It has been claimed that Indian Buddhism, as opposed to East Asian Chan/Zen traditions, was somehow against humour. In this paper I contend that humour is discernible in canonical Indian Buddhist texts, particularly in Indian Buddhist monastic law codes (Vinaya). I will attempt to establish that what we find in these texts sometimes is not only humourous but that it is intentionally so. I approach this topic by comparing different versions of the same narratives preserved in Indian Buddhist monastic law (...)

Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 30 (5):367-384.score: 122.0
    We examine whether the current regulatory regime instituted in South Korea and the United States would have prevented Hwang’s potential transgressions in oocyte procurement for somatic cell nuclear transfer, we compare the general aspects and oversight framework of the Bioethics and Biosafety Act in South Korea and the US National Academies’ Guidelines for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research, and apply the relevant provisions and recommendations to each transgression. We conclude that the Act would institute centralized oversight under governmental auspices while (...)
