Law in Context: Enlarging a Discipline

By William Twining | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

These essays were written over a period of nearly thirty years, during which I benefited from help, comments, advice, and criticism from more people than it is possible to list. Some of these debts were acknowledged when particular essays were first published. Thanks are also due to the Faculty of Law, University of Dar-es-Salaam, Oxford University Press, Sweet and Maxwell Ltd., Butterworths and Co., London and Toronto, Basil Blackwell Ltd., Valparaiso University Law Review, The Windsor Yearbook of Access to Justice, Dartmouth Publishing Co., the Northern Ireland Legal Quarterly, John Wylie and Sons, and Neil McCormick for permission to reproduce copyright material. Chapter 10 is reprinted from 48 University of Miami Law Review119 ( 1993) which holds copyright on this article. A more general debt is also due to Terry Anderson, David Sugarman, and Robert Stevens. I am particular grateful to Holly Johnson for help with editing and to Evelyn Medina and Harriette Maddy for their patience in word processing, imaging, and generally coping with the frustrations of modern technology. As ever, I owe most to my wife for all her support, advice, practical help, and good judgement.
