The Oxford Companion to Law
Clarendon Press, 1980 - 1366 pages
Far more than a legal dictionary or encyclopedia of legal rules, this volume contains thousands of entries on every aspect of law, ranging historically from the dawn of Greek and Roman civilization to the present. Entries cover legal history and philsophy, comparative law, international law, and the main legal systems that share the common Western legal tradition.
