Foreword by Richard Epstein, New York University School of Law. In this modern compilation and commentary, the most important medieval cases are paraphrased and analyzed, making this interesting and entertaining litigation accessible to everyone. Although Maitland's classic History of English Law ends at Henry III's death, until now no one has explained in clear modern language the transformative events that followed. After Edward I became king, Chief Justice Bereford took charge of the legal system and created law in accord with his own sense of justice. The book puts his innovations into the context of contemporary American and English law.
