Baker and Milsom's Sources of English Legal History is the definitive source book on the development of English private law.
This new edition has been comprehensively revised and udpated to incorporate new sources discovered since the original publication in 1986, and to reflect developments in recent scholarship.
All the sources included are translated into modern English, offering an accessible inroad to the leading primary materials for students of the history of the common law.
The sources themselves - revealing the operation of courts across a wide range of personal and economic disputes - offer a rich resource for historians researching the development of the English government, society, and economy.
Their significance in shaping the common law spans beyond England, and ensures the collection is an essential reference point for all those interested in the history of the common law in any jurisdiction.
