Abstract

The new edition of this short introduction to Western legal systems has been updated, and has been enrichened by a series of illustrations following the “legal design” movement. Legal systems are seen in a holistic perspective as complex systems in which each traditional partition is constantly in relation with (and influenced by) the other parts. At the same time all legal systems are placed in a global context with which they are in osmosis. The volume is aimed at introductory courses to Comparative Law and Comparative Legal Systems and is subdivided in eight chapters devoted to: 1.Democratic Systems. 2. Values. 3. Government. 4. The Economic Dimension. 5. The 'Welfare State'. 6. Repression of Crimes. 7. Judges and Jurisdiction. 8. Models for a Globalized World .

Keywords: legal systems, comparative law, democratic systems, Western legal tradition
