Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Tompson (history, U. of Utah) describes the growth and interaction of legal systems in England, Scotland, and Ireland from the 17th century to the present, and mentions in passing the suppression of Welsh law in the 14th century after the conquest. Using legal history to illuminate the general course of events and contributing to the recent multinational approach to British history, he argues that legal interaction was an important part of many major events.
