Book Description

August 14, 2009 1841139904 978-1841139906
From the viewpoint of the constitutional crisis in Europe, slow UN reforms, difficulties implementing the Kyoto Protocol and the International Criminal Court, and tensions between human rights and trade, author Mireille Delmas-Marty's "journey through the legal landscape" of the early years of the 21st century shows it to be dominated by imprecision, uncertainty, and instability. The early 21st century appears to be the era of great disorder. In the silence of the market and the fracas of arms, a world overly fragmented by anarchical globalization is being unified too quickly through hegemonic integration. How, she asks, can we move beyond the relative and the universal to build order without imposing it, to accept pluralism without giving up on a common law? Neither utopian fusion nor illusory autonomy, Ordering Pluralism is her answer. The book is both an epistemological revolution and an art, creating a common legal area by progressive adjustments that preserve diversity. Since an immutable world order is impossible, the imaginative forces of law must be called upon to invent a flexible process of harmonization that leaves room for believing we can agree on, and protect, common values. Ordering Pluralism is the first book in the series French Studies in International Law by Hart Publishing, Oxford. It is an engaging and unique book with a convincing proposal for achieving world order.

Editorial Reviews


The Series aims to contribute to the dissemination in English of the works of the most eminent international law scholars writing in French...No book could better introduce this Series than Mireille Delmas-Marty's superb volume, Ordering Pluralism...Translated here for the first time into English, Ordering Pluralism provides a vision for the world and suggests a solution based on analyses so strong, illuminating and profound that they will leave no reader indifferent. It cannot help but stimulate a discussion that I hope is only just beginning. Preface by General Editor, Professor Emmanuelle Jouannet The book is informative, replete with interesting insights, and builds on the flow of an elegant argument. The style is alert and the translation excellent. The argument is a very useful read and a welcome addition to the topic. The readers will enjoy it and learn from it. Bogdan Iancu The Law and Politics Book Review June 27, 2010
