First published by Professional Books in 1985, this acclaimed work traces the development and absorption of Roman law into western European systems, the nature and practice of feudalism and customary law and the growth of the canon law.

The focus of the book gravitates naturally towards the heart of Europe, the Italian Peninsula, France and Germany, but attention is also paid to the evolution of the English and Scots systems.This third edition takes account of changes since the second edition was published in 1994.

The two Scottish chapters have been expanded into three and the final chapter on Europe has been extensively updated. European Legal History is designed for use by undergraduates and postgraduates taking options in this subject or in others bearing on the European legal tradition.

To this end, each chapter ends with a Further Reading list of material in the English language, while the book concludes with a detailed Select Biography including scholarly and foreign language publications.
