Comparative law, like comparative government in general,' has largely confined itself to unintegrated descriptions of European legal principles. Not only has comparative law traditionally been limited in its subject matter, but it also has rarely, if ever, made use of statistical techniques in accounting for the differences observed. It is the purpose of this paper to analyze statistically the relations between industrialism, democracy, and collectivism on the one hand and the judicial process on the other in ten different societies.
