Overview

In this reprint of the 1866 edition, legal historian Maine examines the evolution of the law, from the ancient to the modern world. His focus is on the gradual change from status-based societies, in which individuals were bound to traditional groups, to modern contract- based societies, in which autonomous individuals are free to make contracts and form associations with whomever they choose. The volume contains a new introduction by Dante J. Scala (politics, Saint Anselm College).
