Ancient Law and Modern Understanding: At the Edges
An examination of ancient law which demonstrates how ancient law is relevant and important for understanding history, theology, sociology, and literature. Professor Watson argues that legal history is an essential tool for understanding society, but must be applied with knowledge of how law moves from one society to the next, legal reliance on authority, juristic concern with apparent trivia, and the impact on legal growth.
