Written with students in mind, Baker: An Introduction to English Legal History provides an introduction to the common law and English legal culture through the dimension of history. It traces in outline, the development of the principal features of English legal institutions and doctrines from Anglo-Saxon times to the present.

The introduction has become a standard work on the subject. It has now been updated and improved in consequence of the rapid pace of research in legal history over recent year, which has made this new edition a necessity.

To assist the student further, this new edition has been fully cross-referenced to the relevant sources found in Baker & Milsom: Sources of English Legal History.
