Presenting a critique of conventional methods in comparative law,
this book argues that, for comparative law to qualify as a
discipline, comparatists must reflect on how and why they make
comparisons. Gunter Frankenberg discusses not only methods and
theories, but also the ethical implications and the politics of
comparative law in bringing out the different dimensions of the
discipline. Comparative Law as Critique offers various approaches
that turn against the academic discourse of comparative law,
including analysis of a widespread spirit of innocence in terms of
method, and critique of human rights narratives. It also examines
how courts negotiate differences between cases regarding Muslim
veiling. The incisive critiques and comparisons in this book will
be of essential reading for comparatists working in legal education
and research, as well as students of comparative law and scholars
in comparative anthropology and social sciences.
