Critical Studies in Ancient Law, Comparative Law and Legal History: Essays in Honour of Alan Watson
Hart Publishing, 2001 - 427 pages
This important collection of essays is at the cutting edge of contemporary research on Roman law, comparative law, and legal history. The international and distinguished group of authors address some of the most lively contemporary problems in their respective fields, and provide new perspectives and insights in a wide range of areas. With a firm focus on texts and contexts, the papers come together to provide a coherent volume dedicated to one of the greatest contemporary Romanists, legal historians and comparative lawyers. The book covers Professor Watson's main fields of interest in a clear and accessible form, while also making available the scholarship of some individuals who do not normally publish in English. This fully-indexed volume will be of interest to all scholars and students of Roman law, ancient Jewish and Chinese law, legal history and comparative law, and will be useful for teaching and research in these fields.
