The Italian legal system : an introduction by Michael A Livingston( Book )

14 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For fifty years, the first edition of The Italian Legal System has been the gold standard among English-language works on the Italian legal system. The book's original authors, Mauro Cappelletti, John Henry Merryman, and Joseph M. Perillo, provided not only an overview of Italian law, but a definition of the field and an important contribution to comparative law scholarship. The book explains the unique 'Italian style' in doctrine, law, and interpretation, and introduces readers to Italian legal history, government, the legal profession, and civil procedure and evidence. In this fully updated and revised second edition, Michael A. Livingston, Pier Giuseppe Monateri, and Francesco Parisi describe the substantial changes in Italian law and society in the intervening five decades - including the creation and impact of the European Union, and advances in comparative law. The second edition poses timely, relevant questions of whether and to what extent the Italian style of law has survived the pressures of European unification, American influence, and the globalization of law and society"--Unedited summary from book cover

Thinking about the Elgin marbles : critical essays on cultural property, art, and law by John Henry Merryman( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and Polish and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The new edition of this insightful work begins with a critical reexamination of the rival Greek and British claims to the Elgin Marbles. That case study identifies the questions that continue to dominate the growing international debate about cultural property policy and which are subsequently explored in a newly expanded array of essays." "The work goes on to pay particular attention to the law and policy relating to cultural property export controls and the evolution and development of the 1995 UNIDROIT Convention on the Return of Stolen and Illegally Exported Cultural Property." "The second part of this highly regarded book addresses a number of contemporary art law issues in essays on counterfeit art, the moral rights of artists, the artist's resale right (droit de suite), the litigation over the Mark Rothko estate, and problems of museum trustee negligence, conflict of interests, and misuse of inside information."--Wolters Kluwer CCH Website
