‘A sophisticated and informative journey through a fascinating intellectual landscape: Roman law, private and public, in its ancient context and beyond, beautifully explained to lawyers and historians.’
Dario Mantovani - Università degli Studi di Pavia, Italy
‘The Cambridge Companion to Roman Law is an indispensable survey of the enormous field of Roman law, focusing not just on the substance of the law, but also on the process of its creation, its enforcement in the Roman world, and its subsequent influence on later legal systems.’
Dennis Kehoe - Tulane University, Louisiana
‘This book is a good companion for a long journey, from the formation of Roman law through its reconstruction in the Middle Ages to its continuing influence in the modern world. The authors present Roman law authoritatively and from a range of perspectives, examining its doctrines, its development, and its intellectual and economic roots.’
James Gordley - Tulane University, Louisiana
'It is rare to read a book on Roman law which is difficult to put down, but this is such a book … [It] has much to offer both the general reader and the professional lawyer or classicist.'
