How to order this book


R.C. Van Caenegem is one of the few legal historians to have crossed national boundaries successfully. His knowledge of the various codes and customs of the European Continent in general and the Low Countries in particular enables him to bring a fresh eye to the English Common law. This book sees the first publication in English for four of these nine essays.

Contents:
Public prosecution of crime in 12th-c. England;
Criminal law in England & Flanders under Henry II & Philip of Alsace;
Borough charter of St-Omer of 1127;
Methods of proof in western medieval law;
Law in the medieval world;
Place of the Low Countries in European legal history;
Main language: English common law seen from the European continent;
The Rechtsstaat in historical perspective;
Max Weber - historian & sociologist.
