about

Pollock and Maitland's classic The History of English Law before the time of Edward I is perhaps unique amongst late Victorian historical works in remaining the fundamental text on its subject a hundred years later. The current volume gathers leading legal historians to celebrate Maitland'sachievement, to analyse his methods, to assess his legacy, and to suggest new directions for research into the history of English law before the reign of Edward I.
John Hudson is at University of St Andrews.

Editorial Reviews

`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
