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.

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.

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.
