Can there be such a thing as a European sociology of law? The uncertainties which arise when attempting to answer that straightforward question are the subject of this collection, which also overlaps into comparative law, legal history, and legal philosophy. The richness of approaches reflected in the essays - including comparisons with the US - show the present state of socio-legal studies in Europe and map directions for its future development. Certainly we already know something about the existence of differences in the use and meaning of law within and between the nation states and groups that make up the European Union. They concern the role of judges and lawyers, the use of courts, patterns of delay, contrasts in penal 'sensibilities,' or the meanings of underlying legal and social concepts. Still, similarities in 'legal culture' are at least as remarkable in societies at roughly similar levels of political and economic development. The volume should serve as a needed stimulus to a research agenda aimed at uncovering commonalities and divergences in European ways of approaching the law.

About the Author:

Volkmar Gessner is Professor of Sociology of Law and Comparative Law at the Law Faculty and Head of Department at the University of Bremen, Germany. David Nelken is Distinguished Professor of Legal Institutions and Social Change at the University of Macerata, Italy; Distinguished Research Professor of Law, University of Wales, Cardiff and Visiting Professor of Law at the London School of Economics, UK. He has been chosen for the 2009 Sellin- Glueck award in criminology, the highest award given by the American Society of Criminology to scholars from outside the USA. He will be presented with the award - for his 'extraordinary record of scholarship' - at the Society's international conference in Philadelphia in November.

Review:

...the first of its kind in trying to assess if there is a distinctive European way of dealing with law and society, and their answer is definitely in the affirmative...a very courageous attempt to tackle many issues and will definitely generate further debate and new research. For this reason only, the volume should be of great interest to the many sociologists of law in Europe, and to the many more interested in this discipline. At the same time its value extends far beyond these two groups, as this volume should be of equal importance to sociologists of law in other parts of the world interested in learning about the European approach in its various dimensions. Stephan Parmentier Law & Society Review Vol. 42, No. 4. (December 2008) A very comprehensive source of nuanced information and ideas on the sociology of European law. Tba European Library No. 9604/766 Taken together, the collection of essays that makes up European Ways of Law is essential reading for sociologists of law and legal scholars, and anyone else seeking to understand European legal culture - now and in the future. A. Javier Trevino European Law Journal Volume 16, No. 2, March 2010 The contributions to this collection provide food for thought. This collection and its individual chapters will no doubt be cited by those seeking to get to grips with European ways of law, its problems, its potential and likely future direction for years to come. Mark Flear European Law Review Volume 35, 2010
