Abstract

Advanced Introduction to Law and Globalisation is an excellent book that provides a well-reasoned and articulated analysis of the interconnections between international law, individual rights and the fiduciary expectations of multinational businesses and international organisations. The book, which is rich in supporting narratives, argues that modern legal reasoning across the globe is becoming, at an ever-increasing pace, a manifestation of a shared global legal culture. It is a distinctive global culture that has chosen a variation of English as a shared language, a series of accepted methodologies and, on a more general level, relinquished some, but not all, of the eighteenth century’s assumptions which linked legality to a state. A rich and diversified global legal culture is not associated with the emergence of a global order. Rather, a global legal culture, in Husa’s description, is a manifestation of the acceptance of pluralism and its implications for practitioners and academics. For instance, the protection of rights as an expression of the individualism in liberal systems and the protection of humanism in Middle Eastern legal cultures are accommodated by the activities of international jurisdictions such as the Singapore International Commercial Court.
