Overview

This is a two-volume reprint of the 1901 edition in which Bryce, formerly of Oxford<-->Oriel and Trinity colleges, collected studies composed at different times over a long period of years.

The essays cover the Roman and British empires in India, the extension of Roman and English law throughout the world, flexible and rigid constitutions, the action of centripetal and centrifugal forces on political constitutions, primitive Iceland, two South African constitutions, the constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia, obedience, the nature of sovereignty, the law of nature, the methods of legal science, the relations of law and religion, methods of law-making in Rome and in England, the history of legal development at Rome and in England, and marriage and divorce in Roman and in English law. Volume II concludes with an inaugural and a valedictory lecture. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
