Originally published in 1937, this book contains a collection of fourteen lectures, addresses and papers written by Lord Macmillan, all devoted to the subject of law and the range of aspects in society law affects, alters and assimilates, such as politics, ethics and language.

Delivered between the years of 1916-36 in cities such as Cambridge, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Glasgow, the lectures in this book were intended to spark discussion and debate over the influential currents of the British legal system.

This rich and telling social commentary of law in early twentieth century Britain will be of considerable value to law scholars and is also a must read for the broader community of scholars in cognate fields such as political science, philosophy and the history of education.
