Annotation The text does not deal with conventional comparative law. The author does not accept that to a great extent law reflects society or the power of the ruling elite. The conclusions are: 1) governments and rulers are not much interested in developing law, especially not private law, but leave this to others to whom they do not grant power to make law; 2) even famous lawmakers are seldom interested in a particular social issue in law or in giving law certainty; 3) borrowing, even mindless, is the name of the legal game. The survival of law in different circumstances for centuries and also in a different place is emphasized.
Keywords legal transplant, legal borrowing, reception, law and society.
