Comparative law has transformed into a challenging and interdisciplinary field with a long intellectual history. Mathias Siems’ welcomed addition to the field offers a stimulating and thoughtful introduction to a new kind of comparative law which is contextualised and cosmopolitan as to its nature. The book offers an insightful overview of key issues arising in the comparative study of law today. Siems skilfully deals with established approaches, but also provides cutting-edge views to socio-legal and statistical approaches as well as providing examples from politics, economics and development studies. The work by Siems is a concise synthesis and it is bound to enlighten and provoke its readers. This well-composed book makes wonderful reading for both students and scholars.” Jaakko Husa, University of Lapland

Competition Law



Competition Law EC Competition Law Giorgio Monti

London School of Economics and Political Science

Monti explores the development of EC competition law through an interdisciplinary approach, focusing on the political and economic considerations that affect the way the rules are interpreted. Written with competition law students in mind, it should also be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students of EU politics and economics. • Non-technical reviews of the relevant economic literature allow all readers to participate fully in the discussion of competition law • Detailed case studies illustrate the operation of rules in specific circumstances, as well as their general application for a fuller understanding • The introduction of additional topics for study gives the student the broadest possible perspective on the subject

… the most readable and yet thoughtful account on the market. Whilst being very practical, it has the great benefit of making clear the distinctive contributions of law and politics (not simply economics) to competition law in the EU.” Daniel Wilsher, City University London

Chapters highlight the most important decisions in case law and integrate judicial excerpts into detailed discussion and analysis.

International Law Foundations of International Migration Law Edited by Brian Opeskin Macquarie University, Sydney

Richard Perruchoud

International Organisation for Migration

and Jillyanne Redpath-Cross International Organisation for Migration

Written by leading figures of international migration law, Foundations of International Migration Law offers a stimulating survey of the key themes in the field. Broad in scope and with an accessible style, this volume provides an understanding of how specialized international migration law fits with other branches of the discipline. • Broad coverage of relevant legal regimes across the chapters • Each chapter contains a list of key resources and key readings, allowing readers to explore relevant migration institutions, processes and databases

Minimalistically defined by Louis Varlez in 1927 as the body of international norms applicable to migration, international migration law continues to struggle to achieve recognition as a discrete body of international law ranking alongside international criminal law, the law of the sea, international economic law, etc. In a weighty study, featuring sixteen different contributions by leading scholars, the editors seek to furnish an overview of the subject in an accessible foundational text that includes maps, case studies, break-out boxes and a helpful glossary. International migration law is seen to have three pillars: human rights, state sovereignty and international cooperation.” Hugo Storey, International Journal of Refugee Law

• Clearly written chapters on non-specialist sources of IML, including a glossary of essential terms
