More About This Textbook


Frontiers of Legal Knowledge examines contemporary issues in African jurisprudence on the business and economic law aspects of globalization and good governance. It sets out an interdisciplinary exposition of the law, providing an interface of business law, finance, management, economics, political economy, and development studies. This book attempts to permeate intellectual spheres that have not been explored in depth before. In essence, this is not a simple textbook on the introductory aspects of a particular field of law. By contrast, the book breaks new ground in the areas of business and economic law. A law-in-context approach is presented, giving added value to the respective fields of knowledge in the book. The editors have endeavored to bring together fresh and original contributions from leading African scholars on the respective subjects covered in the book, with each chapter written by an expert in the field.

Mwenda and Ailola cover, among other things, development economics and development studies, and the nexus between these disciplines and business and economic law. The topics examined include the following: privatization law in Zambia; the U.S. African Growth Opportunity Act, as it applies to Zambia and other African countries; the legal framework for the African Trade Insurance Agency; international aspects of protecting intellectual property rights; land law and property rights in Zambia; aspects of trusts law in Zambia; the institutional framework for tax administration in Zambia and principles of tax law in that country; developments in labor law of international organizations and the applicability of such matters to Zambia; securities regulation both in Zambia and other countries; the legal framework for regulating foreign direct investment in Zambia; developments in company law and corporate finance law of Zambia and other countries; developments relating to the financial sector; and many other areas of jurisprudence in Africa. Scholars interested in studying international and comparative law, and the interface of law and the social sciences, will find this book a must read.
