On the Laws and Customs of England

Essays in Honor of Samuel E. Thorne

Book - 1981
Rate this:
Investigating a wide range of problems in the development of English law, this collection of original essays honors the contributions of Samuel D. Thorne to the study of English legal history from the eleventh to the seventeenth century. The essays combine close study of legal texts and doctrines in their own setting with broader analysis of the interaction of legal and social change. Although each essay has its own historiographical context, a substantial unity is achieved.

Originally published in 1981.
