Research Canons: Comparative Law
Our next subject matter for the research canons project is Comparative Law. (See here for a discussion of the research canons project.) Please comment on the books and articles that are essential to a new academic in the field.
This is our last installment. We'll have a wrap-up of the canons project next week.
Update: Patrick O'Donnell has contributed his extensive bibliography here.
