外国人研究者の視点から、日本法の基本的な特徴を英語で広く世界に発信する。一般的に日本法は明治維新後に外国法がどのように継受、修正されたかが問題とされるが、本書では特に、日本法を取り囲む様々な基層を踏まえつつ、古代国家の成立から現代に至る日本法の歴史的形成・発展や特徴を、物語として記述する。また、現代日本の法及び制度を包括的に解説しており、日本法を学び、研究する外国人にとっても最適な一冊である。*Amazonオンデマンド、電子書籍でも販売。
Written from the perspective of a non-Japanese scholar, this book aims at broadly divulging in English the basic features and traits of Japanese law.
Generally, studies on Japanese law tend to focus on the problem of how foreign law has been received and modified in Japan after the Meiji Restoration. In an attempt to identify the different layers that constitute Japan's legal system, this work narrates the historical formation and development of Japanese law from Ancient to Modern times. It also provides a well-balanced and up-to-date account of the basic legal rules and institutions of Today's Japan. Thus, the book will be a perfect primer for non-Japanese students seeking to learn the basics of Japanese law.
