This book explores the development of law in Europe from its medieval origins to the present day, charting the transformation from law rooted in the Church and local community towards a recognition of the centralised, secular authority of the state.

  • Shows how these changes reflect the wider political, economic, and cultural developments within European history.
  • Demonstrates the diversity of traditions between European states and the possibilities and limitations in the search for common European values and goals.
