New. $95. * This title by Sir Paul Vinogradoff [1854-1925] is a sophisticated introduction to jurisprudence. It is notable for its sociological interpretation, which was then a recent idea in Anglo-American jurisprudence. "We know very few short books, and not many books on a larger scale, so well fitted to give lay people a just notion of the spirit of modern law, and, what is not less important, to encourage practising lawyers in maintaining a liberal and dignified view of their profession.": Frederick Pollock, Law Quarterly Review 30 (1914) 236. This book was written for the Home University Series. These layman's guides are notable because several were written by distinguished authors.
