Law and Revolution II : The Impact of the Protestant Reformation in the Western Legal Tradition Paperback
Harold Berman's masterwork illuminates the interaction of evolution and revolution in the development of Western law.
This new volume explores two successive transformations of the Western legal tradition under the impact of the 16th Century German Reformation and the 17th Century English Revolution, with particular emphasis on Lutheran and Calvinist influences.
Berman examines the far-reaching consequences of these apocalyptic political and social upheavals on the systems of legal philosophy, legal science, criminal law, civil and economic law, and social law in Germany and England and throughout Europe as a whole.
