Russian-English Legal Dictionary, Second Revised and Expanded Edition.
Butler, William E. Russian-English Legal Dictionary. Second Revised and Expanded Edition. Clark, New Jersey: Talbot Publishing, June 2023. xxxii, 172 pp. ISBN-13: 9781616196820 ISBN-10: 1616196823. Hardcover. New. $150. * A title in the Studies in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Law series. Substantially revised and expanded, this edition contains more than 25,000 words and phrases drawn from the legislative acts, international treaties and doctrinal writings of the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Unlike the great majority of other legal dictionaries, its terminological base is founded on Russian legal practice and usage. The English translations are intended to convey the literal meaning of Russian terms and minimize confusion by ascribing them, insofar as possible, to their sole or principal English equivalents. William E. Butler is the John Edward Fowler Distinguished Professor of Law, Penn State Dickinson Law, and Emeritus Professor of Comparative Law, University College London. The author of numerous works on post-Soviet legal systems, including Russian Law and Legal Institutions (3d ed.; 2021), he has over sixty years of experience as a translator of Soviet and CIS materials ranging from articles, major treatises, codes, legislative acts and treaties to other international and comparative legal materials.
