Review:

This is a clear, readable, up-to-date, and extremely useful presentation of the role of law in the making of European history. It does equal justice to a variety of traditions from the ancient to the early modern, with a good section on the medieval period. And it makes clear, even for the uninitiated, how central was the role of law and legal institutions in shaping the fabric of European society, even until now.--John Van Engen, University of Notre Dame

Robert Shaffern's book provides a compelling introduction to the vast field of law and legal studies in the west. He provides a diligently researched and accessible compendium of introductory essays, covering a broad range of topics that will be of interest to any student of western thought and culture.--Timothy M. Thibodeau, Nazareth College
