INDABA, 72/12 (2012)
[...] This liber amicorum is a comprehensive composition of very thoughtful, scientific and practical valuable articles from different disciplines by authors from various backgrounds and, hence, perspectives. It makes a significant contribution to the discussion on legal pluralism and its theoretical and practical impacts as well as underlying concepts. Many of the essays relate to Manfred Hinz's scientific findings and his way of thinking. Moreover the interdisciplinary approach of many authors gives consideration to the fact that legal pluralism and related topics cannot be analyzed purely from a legal viewpoint but have to be understood from more than one perspective including, for example, the sociological, cultural or anthropological perspective.

about this book

deutsch english

This Liber Amicorum dedicates itself to the colonial past and liberalisation of Africa, a legal and political anthropology, a new legal architecture in modern Africa, and miscellaneous themes. It intends, by alerting to the law from within societies, to deepen the understanding of the world-wide observable phenomenon of legal pluralism.

The question addressed by many contributions deals with the “law from within”, the law which is developed from society and the correlation it enfolds towards other internal and external public and international law with which at times it builds up legal tensions. This is a question, which characterises much of the practical and scientific work of Prof. Dr. Manfred O. Hinz.

The volume consists of more than 30 contributions from academics of different European and African Universities, politicians and practitioners The themes cover apart from Legal Pluralism, Public International Law, Human Rights, African Law and Comparative Law also Legal History, Jurisprudence, Political Science and Legal Anthropology.
