Editorial Reviews

Review

<p> Legal traditions and legal institutions are, like so much else of the present day world, products of the past. Teachers of its history to students whilst at the same time maintaining and transmitting high scholarly standards. This remarkable collection of materials is both an outstanding work of scholarship in its own right, and as attractive and thoroughly usable a teaching tool as has ever been published for any subject studied in American law schools. <br /><i>– Brian Simpson</i> </p> <p> </p> <p> I have assigned, at one time or another, most of the leading text books and document readers for my legal history classes. Though I have my favorites from the past, this year, I adopted Langbein, Lerner, and Smith's <i>History of the Common Law: The Development of Anglo-American Legal Institutions</i>. Langbein, et al. use modern educational coursebook design to emphasize primary materials, carry student attention forward, and provoke student interest through graphics and images that enhance the text. It is a great achievement, a major step forward in the evolution of course materials for the American law school. <br />–<i> Stephen M. Sheppard, William H. Enfield Professor of Law, University of Arkansas School of Law</i> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>

John H. Langbein is the Sterling Professor of Law & Legal History at Yale Law School.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A great book for distilling academic research of various periods into a comprehensible and very readable narrative of common law development. Its organic presentation of that development makes the history both more understandable and more memorable. The book is also unusually aesthetically pleasing compared to its colleagues--lots of colorful historical inscriptions and depictions of various common law-relevant people, places, and events.

This is now the standard one volume work on English legal history. It is an expensive but beautiful treasure and a delight to read. It is unfortunate that it is too costly to assign as a course book.
