The civil law tradition : an introduction to the legal systems of Western Europe and Latin America by John Henry Merryman( Book )

76 editions published between 1900 and 2020 in 7 languages and held by 2,521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed for the general reader and students of law, this is a concise history and analysis of the civil law tradition, which is dominant in most of Europe, all of Latin America, and many parts of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The fourth edition is fully updated to include the latest developments in the field and to correct and update historical details gleaned from newly-published research on Roman and Medieval law. In the past ten years, the legal profession has changed radically, with the growing international ubiquity of large law firms operating across borders (which was previously a uniquely American phenomenon). This new edition updates the book from the post-Soviet era to ongoing current issues, including Brexit and the status of the European Union. It discusses how civil law codes have shifted in some countries to adapt to modern and changing ideologies and also includes brand-new material on legal education, which is of central importance to the legal profession today
Law, ethics, and the visual arts by John Henry Merryman( Book )

42 editions published between 1979 and 2007 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its first edition in 1979, Law, Ethics and the Visual Arts has established itself as the leading art law text among law professors, students, and practitioners. This new and newly illustrated, fifth edition, revised in collaboration with Stephen K. Urice, incorporates recent changes in treaty, statutory, and case law. It includes discussion of recent developments from the resurgence of iconoclasm to military conflicts' depredations on cultural property. As in earlier editions, the authors present legal issues in their historical contexts. In this edition, documents previously presented in a separate documentary appendix have been integrated into the text to provide immediate access to important treaties and other materials."--Jacket
The Italian legal system : an introduction by Michael A Livingston( Book )

9 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 460 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

14 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

27 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and Polish and held by 429 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."--Jacket
Imperialism, art and restitution( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The issue of returning art and cultural property removed from explored or conquered lands by Americans and Europeans is an unresolved problem. This book is about the return, or not, of works of art and antiquity taken during the Age of Imperialism and now held in museums and private collections. Arguments put forth by the states seeking return or restitution for lost art treasures and meaningful cultural icons are pitted against conservator interests who maintain that these art treasures and cultural artefacts belong to all humanity and should be preserved in museums. In this volume, scholars and authorities on art, cultural property law and museum collections offer contrasting views on topics such as the Elgin Marbles, the return of the Nefertiti Bust and the problems and progress of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA)."--

The loneliness of the comparative lawyer : and other essays in foreign and comparative law by John Henry Merryman( Book )

15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these critical essays a leading comparative lawyer examines the movement for convergence of the Civil Law and the Common Law, describes the Italian Style and the French Deviation, contrasts Common Law estate with Civil Law ownership, explains why the distinction between public law and private law is important to Civil Lawyers but has little interest for Common Lawyers, exposes the fatal emptiness at the core of the Law and Development movement, proposes a marriage of comparative law and scientific explanation, emphasizes the fundamental relation between law and social and cultural change, argues that the dominant tradition of comparative law teaching and scholarship is trapped in a cramped and arid 19th century paradigm, and advocates a culturally broader and historically richer approach to comparative law teaching and scholarship."--BOOK JACKET
