Goebel, Julius, Jr. Felony and Misdemeanor: A Study in The History of English Criminal Procedure. Volume I [all published]. Originally published: New York: The Commonwealth Fund, 1937. xxix, 455, [1] pp. Reprinted 2006 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584776031; ISBN-10: 158477603X. Smyth-sewn cloth hardcover. New. $39.95 * Immediately acclaimed as one of the most important contributions to European legal history, Felony and Misdemeanor has a broader scope than its title suggests. It is a history of the legal institutions in the Frankish Empire, Normandy and pre-conquest England and their contributions to the formation of Anglo-American private law, public law and judicial administration. It is also a social and political history of the early Middle Ages. This work, complete in itself, was intended to have a second volume which was never published. Reviewing this book in 1938 for the Harvard Law Review, Max Radin said it was "one of the most notable contributions to European legal history that has been made anywhere in recent years" and "a first-rate achievement" (51:1463, 1465).
