Book description

Drawing together leading legal historians from a range of jurisdictions and cultures, this collection of essays addresses the fundamental methodological underpinning of legal history research. Via a broad chronological span and a wide range of topics, the contributors explore the approaches, methods and sources that together form the basis of their research and shed light on the complexities of researching into the history of the law. By exploring the challenges posed by visual, unwritten and quasi-legal sources, the difficulties posed by traditional archival material and the novelty of exploring the development of legal culture and comparative perspectives, the book reveals the richness and dynamism of legal history research.

Reviews

'This volume is highly recommended to all those involved in legal historical research. It contains a great deal of very practical advice, and it lucidly articulates the methods of many leading scholars in the field. Professor Musson and Professor Stebbings are to be congratulated on the compilation of a very useful and well-presented book. No university law library should be without a copy.'
