`No one has matched the scale of Maitland's achievement, nor is it likely that anyone will. These papers demonstrate that he set an agenda which is still valid for modern scholars; this fine volume serves both as a tribute to him and as a demonstration of the continuing strength and vitalityof medieval legal history.'Times Literary Supplement
