Ten legal scholars explore facets of the 1917 Russian revolutions from the standpoint of:-
- Russian Law (transition to market economy),
- Comparative law (the impact of the 1917 Revolutions on the Soviet and post-Soviet legal experience; the development of comparative legal studies in Russia, and similarities and differences between Soviet and German Nazi law),
- and public international law (Russian fishing activities off Finnmark; Norwegian recognition policies vis-a-vis Russia; and the enduring importance of the Martens Clause in international humanitarian law)
The volume is complemented by a substantial selection of documents on Scandanavian-Russian legal relations between 1917 and 1928.
