Oxford's variorum edition of William Blackstone's seminal treatise on the common law of England and Wales offers the definitive account of the Commentaries' development in a modern format. For the first time it is possible to trace the evolution of English law and Blackstone's thought through the eight editions of Blackstone's lifetime, and the authorial corrections of the posthumous ninth edition. Introductions by the general editor and the volume editors set the Commentaries in their historical context, examining Blackstone's distinctive view of the common law, and editorial notes throughout the four volumes assist the modern reader in understanding this key text in the Anglo-American common law tradition. Book I: Of the Rights of People Volume Editor: David Lemmings Book II: Of the Rights of Things Volume Editor: Simon Stern Book III: Of Private Wrongs Volume Editor: Thomas P. Gallanis Book IV: Of Public Wrongs Volume Editor: Ruth Paley

MEDIA REVIEWS
Reading the Commentaries sheds light on the character of English law before the establishment of legal positivism, and for that reason it may hold a special interest for scholars. * Dick Helmholz, New Rambler *
Blackstones Commentaries remain a central source for understanding both historical and modern Anglo-American law as well as many debates in Anglo-American legal philosophy and Oxford University Presss new edition of the Commentaries offers a valuable new resource for studying them. * Brian Bix, Jotwell *
