New. $64.95 * This collection of eleven distinguished essays explores the legal thought that grew out of the revival of Roman law and its subsequent contribution to the development of public law and early modern theories of the state. "This very fine book deserves to be judged as something more than a mere collection of scattered essays. There is an impressive unity of thought and argument running through all the various studies, and together they form a coherent and extremely valuable contribution to a recent movement of thought that has been reshaping our understanding of the principles on which medieval government was based.": Brian Tierney, Harvard Law Review 78 (1964-1965):1502.
