The essays in this volume offer global perspectives on crucial contemporary issues such as economic development, the persistence of customary law, offshore" jurisdictions, family law and succession, land tenure, the forging of national constitutions, human rights violations, and the treatment of ethnic minorities.

Rendering Asian and African legal systems and traditions in an accessible form to a non-Asian and non-African audience, this volume will sharpen the sensitivity of academics and practitioners everywhere.
