Making of Modern Law: Foreign, Comparative and International Law, 1600-1926
Foreign and international legal literature including treatises and monographs covering these areas:
- International Law
This largest category in the archive includes classics since the sixteenth century.
- Foreign Law
Foreign legal treatises of a variety of countries. Because the term "treatise" is more of a common-law category, the equivalent works in civil-law systems may have other names.
- Comparative Law
Comparisons of more than one legal system and includes Ancient, Roman, Jewish Law and Islamic law. The collection recognizes that the roots of English common law will be found in the deep recesses of European history.
This archive complements the codes found in The Making of Modern Law: Foreign Primary Sources collection.
