A Legal history of Rome is a superb introduction to the history of Roman law, the basis of much of contemporary jurisprudence. Combining readability and scholarship, this book enables readers to a profound understanding of the evolution of the Roman legal system, its formative ideas, its modes of thought and means of change. Professor Mousourakis has both the scholarship and the gift for sharing the fruits of it with his readers. This is a really classic book!

In this superbly written and thoroughly researched work Mousourakis offers a comprehensive account of the entire history of ancient Roman law - the basis of most modern legal systems. Throughout the book the evolution of legal sources and forms of legal procedure is elucidated in connection with the social, political and economic development of the Roman people. Probably the best book in its category in the market today and a work that readers of both law and history will enjoy and benefit from.
