Elgar Advanced Introductions Now Available Online

The Goodson Law Library has subscribed to e-book versions of the Elgar Advanced Introductions to Law. This series balances accessible introductions to a particular topic with expert commentary.

Currently, the Elgar Advanced Introductions online library includes 15 e-book titles, with dozens of additional titles to be added over the next two years. Subjects skew heavily toward comparative and international law topics, and recent publications in the online library include:
  • Mark Tushnet, Advanced Introduction to Comparative Constitutional Law (also available in print)
  • Reuven S. Avi-Yonah, Advanced Introduction to International Tax Law (also available in print)
  • Jaakko Husa, Advanced Introduction to Law and Globalisation
The Duke University Libraries have additional Elgar Advanced Introduction titles in print, both at the Law Library and across campus. You can locate the e-book series link as well as available print titles in the Duke Libraries Catalog with a search for "Elgar Advanced Introductions."

For additional scholarly overviews of legal topics in electronic format, you might also be interested in Oxford Handbooks in Law Online or the Concepts & Insights and Hornbook series on West Academic Library Study Aids. The Law Library has still more scholarly overviews and study aids in print format, as well. For help finding the perfect depth of treatment for your topic area, be sure to Ask a Librarian.
