Book description

This is a short and succinct summary of the unique position of Roman law in European culture by one of the world's leading legal historians. Peter Stein's masterly study assesses the impact of Roman law in the ancient world, and its continued unifying influence throughout medieval and modern Europe. Roman Law in European History is unparalleled in lucidity and authority, and should prove of enormous utility for teachers and students (at all levels) of legal history, comparative law and European Studies. Award-winning on its appearance in German translation, this English rendition of a magisterial work of interpretive synthesis is an invaluable contribution to the understanding of perhaps the most important European legal tradition of all.

Reviews

‘In Roman Law in European History, a master gives his readers both an introduction to the law of ancient Rome and an account of how that law lived on, well after the demise of the ancient society. For students and for scholarly beginners, this short book is an excellent way to learn the story and to understand its importance. … Although it is a summary that is mindful of the uninitiated, this small book manages not to sacrifice the rigorous or the scholarly.’

David V. Snyder - Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Cleveland State University

‘Every scholar will learn from this account, and students coming fresh to the subject will find it an excellent place to start.’
