MEDIA REVIEWS
Every section prompts more thought... A model of how legal history should be written. * Stephen Sedley, The London Review of Books *
I believe that anyone who has the slightest interest in the development of this country, and its institutions, and who seeks an understanding of how we come to be where we are now, will find endless fascination in these many pages. * Lord Chief Justice, The Right Honourable Lord Judge *
This outstanding and elegant work deserves the widest possible readership. It is essential for those who are passionate about our legal heritage; for the merely curious it will provide the passion. * David Perry QC, 6 King's Bench Walk *
...these three volumes provide a detailed survey of English law, its institutions and the historical forces which impinged on them...If you are seeking a special insight and degree of authority, conferred by depth of understanding and breadth of knowledge of the devlopment and evolution of law, I can scarcely think of a more vital and valuable addition to your law library * Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, Richmond Green Chambers *
On Volume XI ...the authors in their manifest state that this volume is aimed primarily at legal historians. Undoubtedly this audience has much to gain from the volume as providing a rarely available, holistic treatment of legal institutions in the early nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Yet so, too, could both scholars of the modern law and historians usefully engage in a perusal of its contents. * Charlotte Smith, University of Reading, The Edinburgh Law Review Vol 15 *
On Volume XII ...an excellent volume. Even those who are familiar with the progress of private law in the nineteenth and early twentieth century will learn a great deal from its pages. * Warren Swain, University of Durham, Edinburgh Law Review *
On Volume XIII This volume should become a key point of reference for historians whose accounts of the period have not found much room to accommodate legal processes and developments. The clarity of the writing throughout and the detailed index make the information readily accessible. * Phil Handler, University of Manchester, The Edinburgh Law Review Vol 15 *
It is a model of how legal history should be written * Stephen Sedley, London Review of Books *
