Abstract / Description of output

This chapter introduces the themes treated in this book, in particular that of continuity and change in public and private law. The title of the volume is open to a variety of interpretations. This introduction shows how those interpretations map on to the aims of the book. This is done through the exploration of the nature and essence of public law as it has existed in the state context, the relationship between public law and its ‘after’, namely private law, as well as the ways in which global changes challenge these understandings given changes in the nature and role of the state.
