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.
