  Add to Calendar 2018-02-20 11:00 2018-02-20 13:00 Europe/Paris A Short History of European Law. The Last Two and a Half Millennia

Book Presentation in the framework of the seminar Competition, Collaboration and Emulation: Early Modern Commercial and Colonial Expansion Revisited

To many observers, European law seems like the endpoint of a mostly random walk through history. Certainly the trajectory of legal systems in the West over the past 2,500 years is far from self-evident.
In A Short History of European Law, Tamar Herzog offers a new road map that reveals underlying patterns and unexpected connections. By identifying what European law was, where its iterations could be found, who was allowed to make and implement it, and what the results were, she ties legal norms to their historical circumstances, and allows readers to grasp their malleability and fragility.
