The shipping company supports US, Japan, Australia but not Europe, weird. Also, the shipping is provided by another seller and separately charged, the complex procedure would probably require some communications with the customer service. I guess it might be wiser to wait a few more weeks to see if some jd sellers allows direct shipping or it becomes availible on amazon.

Law, Government, and Society in J.R.R. Tolkien's Works


by José María Miranda Boto - Cormarë Series No. 43 from Walking Tree Publishers.

Law and government are aspects of J.R.R. Tolkien's works that have not received much scholarly attention. However, they are present in many facets of his sub-creation. In describing the various societies that populate it, Tolkien addressed aspects of their legal and governmental systems, such as the succession of kings, rules of inheritance, or the function of the Mayor of Michel Delving. In many cases, he did so to add a further thread to the rich tapestry of his descriptions.

But in other cases, law appears as an important narrative element, functioning as a test of character for the protagonists who encounter it. Thus, the trial of Beregond reveals Aragorn's justice, while Turgon's ordering the execution of Ëol shows his ruthlessness.

Law and philology appear together in several passages of Tolkien's work. It is no coincidence that the most relevant objects of his sub- creation, the One Ring and the Silmarils, are described in archaic legal terms. In parallel, law and the tools of government are used as humorous elements in other fragments.

Law and government are, in short, omnipresent in Tolkien's work. They are not a central element, but, without what is studied in this book, Arda would have been much poorer.

Twenty-First Century Tolkien explores this phenomenon and investigates why Tolkien's works still inspire people fifty years after his death. Taking in surprisingly prescient episodes from the original books and later reworkings, and covering such topics as friendship, failure, uncertainty, the environment, the weird and eerie - as well as Tolkien in a post-Covid age - Nick Groom explains his striking relevance for some of the most pressing issues that now confront us, and ultimately reveals why the Tolkien moment really is now.

Looks like a new standard hardback. I'm wondering if it is a re-issue of the rubbish 2012 "collectors edition".

Maybe this is the relaunch of Inglis LR with old fine print. But the (s13) implies this is fine print from 2013. Odd to me.
