Volume 20 of the highly respected series, Law in Eastern Europe, will contain the "results" and "findings" of research into recent developments in Soviet law, undertaken by a group of scholars during 1975-1978 under a grant from the Ford Foundation. The ultimate purpose of such research, says John N. Hazard, is to determine whether observed new trends call for a "re-evaluation of the nature and course of Soviet law." The first series of results and findings is now before us, as Part One of volume 20. When completed in 1979, the three-part work will provide the non-specialist with an impressive body of knowledge about many key aspects of contemporary Soviet law, presented in a context designed to make this knowledge more intelligible. The specialist, on the other hand, will find much that is new, partially new, or re-assessed with various degrees of skill. Upon the admittedly incomplete evidence of Part One of the project, he may well have also misgivings about the overall methodology used in the study, namely the interaction between the "prerogative" and the "normative" elements in the operation of Soviet law.
