By O. F. Robinson, T. D. Fergus and W. M. Gordon
This much appreciated 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 peninsular, France and Germany, but attention is also paid to the evolution of the Scottish and English systems.
