The book traces the development and reception of Roman law into Western European systems, the nature and practice of feudalism, the practice of canon law and the appearance of the ius commune throughout Europe. It also serves as an introduction to the growth of Scots, French and German law; English legal development is considered in its European context. Account is taken of the political, economic and cultural background to these legal developments; the story leads up to the codification of laws in the nineteenth century, and the foundations of those areas of modern law which have grown in response to trade unionism, the need for social security and desire for European harmonization. 'There is a need for a general survey of European legal history and this comprehensive study is a pioneering work, providing an introduction to the sources of European legal systems; from it the reader may proceed to a more detailed examination of comparative law or legal history.
