Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This volume of The Oxford History of the Laws of England, the first of twelve volumes to appear in print, is a remarkable achievement. A work of vast erudition, based on exhaustive research in the manuscript as well as printed sources, it provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the law during the early Tudor period while also presenting a unifying thesis that is rare in works of this sort. To the extent that the volume incorporates much of Baker's earlier scholarship, it also serves as a monument to his unrivaled contribution to the field of early modern English legal history."—Law and History Review
