3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Dr Marc Sandmeier on November 24, 2003
Format: Hardcover
The aim of this book is to provide a general historical introduction to the development of Roman law, a system of law described as "one of the strongest formative forces in the development of the Western legal tradition". Judged against that aim I think that the book succeeds admirably. In about 450 pages Mousourakis has provided the essential information about the subject, and he has done so with clarity and style. As long as it is remembered that the book is not designed to provide a full account of the complexities of substantive Roman law, and is therefore likely to be used in conjunction with other more detailed materials, it has a place in making Roman legal history more accesible to readers in many diverse fields of legal and historical learning.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Sandy MacRae (LLM) on April 8, 2004
Format: Paperback
This book provides a good introduction to the history of Roman law in English. Mousourakis has written an interesting and stimulating book on a highly complex subject. As a historian he has analysed institutional change in the legal system of ancient Rome giving full weight to non-legal, socio-political, factors which led or contributed to that change. The book manifests scholarly qualities of a high order. The author's reading extends over an exceptionally wide range of topics. The exposition is clear, well structured and easy to read. The references in the text are accurate and helpful. This book can be read with profit by any reader with an interest and general backround in ancient history, and is to be welcomed.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Alexia Mackie on January 19, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Mousourakis has written a comprehensive survey of Roman legal history from the Twelve Tables to the Codification of Justinian. Besides a detailed analysis of the sources of law and an account of civil and criminal law procedure, it contains sections on social, economic and cultural life. The book does not attempt to summarize the whole law, but explains and evaluates its most characteristic and influential features. It concludes with a detailed select bibliography including scholarly and foreign language publications. This is a well-conceived and well-executed work, and one that does a real service to the student of ancient and early European legal history.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Michael Shapiro on July 1, 2004
Format: Hardcover
A very readable and informative text on Roman legal and political history, offering a good description of the socio-economic circumstances in which legal institutions developed. The emphasis in this introductory book is on forms of law making, the role of jurisprudence and the development of procedural law. The history of Roman criminal law and procedure is also examined. The last chapter offers a useful outline of the medieval and later history of Roman law and discusses the role of Roman law in the formation of the European civil law tradition. Both law students and students/readers of ancient history will benefit from reading this book.
