This well-known volume of the Cambridge Studies in English Legal History is reprinted for the pleasure, enlightenment, and intellectual stimulation of lawyers, historians, and philosophers. It presents the juristic and philosophical explanation of the epochs, processes, and ends of legal development in that lucid and forceful manner familiar to the reader of Roscoe Pound’s other writings. It is not only a history and criticism of the processes and ends of legal growth, but also an expression of the author’s own theory as to the modes of legal progress.
