Obligations in Roman Law: Past, Present, and Future - Papers and Monographs of the American Academy in Rome (Hardback)Thomas A. J. McGinn (editor)
- We can order this
Drawn from a conference convened by the volume's editor at the American Academy in Rome, addressing these concerns and others, this volume showcases the expertise of participants from 11 European and two American universities. The Roman law of obligations-a subset of private law-is investigated in detail, together with its subordinate fields, contracts and delicts (torts).
Participants elucidate the relationship between private law on one hand and Roman society and its economy on the other. Chapters also examine whether rules themselves reflect upper-class values and whether it is possible to speak of them as elements of an ideology.
This volume includes contributions by Nikolaus Benke, Cosimo Cascione, Maria Floriana Cursi, Carla Masi Doria, Paul du Plessis, Roberto Fiori, Dennis Kehoe, Ernest Metzger, Federico Procchi, Michael Rainer, Salvo Randazzo, and Bernard Stolte, as well as opening and concluding chapters by editor Thomas McGinn.
