This new edition of the Historical Foundations of the Common Law is far more than an account of the growth of common law.

It a provocative and stimulating book, that provides a detailed look at the earliest framework of the law and demonstrates the underlying structural changes that result in modern law.

By examining legal, social and economic history, it reconstructs legal developments into the stages through which an entire legal system has evolved.
