Ancient Law

by Sir Henry James Sumner Maine

No one who is interested in the growth of human ideas or the origins of human society can afford to neglect Maine's Ancient Law.

The revolution effected by the latter in the study of biology was hardly more remarkable than that effected by Maine's brilliant treatise in the study of early institutions.
