about

First published in 1973, The Birth of the English Common Law has come to enjoy classic status. In a new preface, Professor van Caenegem discusses some recent developments in the study of English law under the Norman and earliest Angevin kings. The book provides a challenging interpretation of the emergence of the Common Law in Anglo-Norman England, against the background of the general development of legal institutions in Europe.
