Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Asian Law is a cutting-edge and comprehensive resource which surveys the interdisciplinary field of Asian Law. Written by an international team of experts, the chapters within cover issues as diverse as family law and Islamic courts, decentralisation and the revival of traditional forms of law, discourses on the rule of law, human rights, corporate governance and environmental protection

The volume is divided into five parts covering:

  • Asia in Law, and the Humanities and Social Sciences;
  • The Political Economy of Law in Asia - Law in the Context of Asian Development; 

  • Asian traditions and their transformations;
  • Law, the environment, and access to land and natural resources;
  • People in Asia and their rights.

Offering an overview of the full spectrum of Law in Asia, the Handbook is an invaluable resource for academics, researchers, lawyers, graduate and undergraduate students studying this ever-evolving field.
