John Hudson

Oxford History of the Laws of England

  • The most comprehensive history of medieval English law published for over one hundred years
  • An accessible and lively account of the crucial development of the common law in the medieval period, allowing modern lawyers to see the earliest foundations of the law as we know it today
  • Translates and quotes extensively from original sources, previously only available in Latin, Old English, and Old French, opening the sources for a wider range of readers
  • Examines critical events in the development of the common law, including the Norman conquest and the Magna Carta
  • Provides not only a history of law, but a history of the impact of law on English society, of value to historians of the period looking to understand the place of law in social and political life
