About Law by Tony Honore

Book Description

This book provides an ideal introduction for anyone wondering whether to study law or those who are simply curious to know more about it. It is not confined to English law, but deals with the Western tradition of law as a whole. It outlines the key problems of constitutional law and the law of property, contracts, treaties, crimes and torts. It also explains the importance of law of forms, procedures, and interpretation and examines how law relates to government, history, and justice. In this way it vividly brings out the intellectual and practical fascination of the subject. The book is easy to read and the chapters are self-contained. Where possible, technical terms are avoided. When unavoidable, they are explained both in the text and in a glossary at the end of the book. The author is a leading lawyer, legal historian, and legal philosopher. During his career in Oxford he taught many hundreds of students and it is from this experience that the book is drawn.

Books By Author Tony Honore

Justinian's Digest by Tony Honore Justinian's Digest, Hardback (July 2010)

This book collects Honore's groundbreaking work on the composition of Justinian's Digest, among the most important texts in Roman Law. It reconstructs the methodology of the Digest's composition, and examines the broader issues raised by the Digest's creation - how it was conceived by its compilers, its purpose, and its impact.

Responsibility and Fault by Tony Honore Responsibility and Fault, Paperback (October 2002)

These highly original essays develop themes implicit in Herbert Hart and the author's 'Causation in the Law'.

Ulpian by Tony Honore Ulpian, Hardback (March 2002)

This is a thoroughly revised edition of the only full-scale work about possibly the most influential lawyer of all time, the Syrian Ulpian. Ulpian wrote a massive survey of Roman law in 213-17 AD and Tony Honor'e argues that his philosophy, of freedom and equality, makes him a pioneer of human rights.

Law in the Crisis of Empire 379-455 AD by Tony Honore Law in the Crisis of Empire 379-455 AD, Hardback (May 1998)

This book examines the laws of a crucial period of the Roman Empire (379-455 AD), a time when the West collapsed while the East survived. It allots the laws to their likely drafters and shows why the eastern Theodosian Code (429-438 AD), intended to restore the legal and administrative unity of the empire, came too late to save the West.
