European law in the past and the future : unity and diversity over two millennia by R. C. van Caenegem( )

26 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and French and held by 2,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Europe moves towards economic and political unification, many wonder why legal unification makes so little headway. In this concise but wide-ranging book, R. C. van Caenegem considers the historical reasons behind this legal diversity. He stresses the importance of the adoption on the Continent - but not in England - of the classical law of the Romans, and shows how the rise of the nation states led to a multitude of national codes of law. The impact of politics on legal development is another key factor, and as a graphic example van Caenegem provides a detailed account of how the German past was extolled in Nazi Germany. The book concludes with a consideration of the ongoing debate on the desirability - indeed, on the possibility - of European legal unification and of a federal constitution for a united Europe
The birth of the English common law by R. C. van Caenegem( Book )

58 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a challenging interpretation of the emergence of the common law in Anglo-Norman England, against the background of the general development of legal institutions in Europe. In a detailed discussion of the emergence of the central courts and the common law they administered, the author traces the rise of the writ system and the growth of the jury system in twelfth-century England. Professor van Caenegem attempts to explain why English law is so different from that on the Continent and why this divergence began in the twelfth century, arguing that chance and chronological accident played the major part and led to the paradox of a feudal law of continental origin becoming one of the most typical manifestations of English life and thought. First published in 1973, The Birth of the English Common Law has come to enjoy classical status, and in a preface Professor van Caenegem discusses some recent developments in the study of English law under the Norman and earliest Angevin kings
Legal history : a European perspective by R. C. van Caenegem( )

14 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

R.C. Van Caenegem is one of the few legal historians to have crossed national boundaries successfully. His knowledge of the various codes and customs of the European Continent in general and the Low Countries in particular enables him to bring a fresh eye to the English Common law. Four of these nine essays have not been published in English before
Law, history, the Low Countries, and Europe by R. C. van Caenegem( )

13 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

R.C. Van Caenegem is the successor of Henri Pirenne and of F.L. Ganshof at the University of Ghent. These essays reflect Van Caenegem's main interests over his career: the Common Law in England and Customary Law in the Low Countries; the differences between institutional development in England and in the rest of Europe; and the forces making for autocratic as opposed to representative government. A number of pieces discuss the nature of history itself: how it compares with the sciences and what it can teach us. Two essays commemorate the lives and work of Pirenne and Ganshof

71 editions published between 1962 and 1979 in 3 languages and held by 991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judges, legislators, and professors : chapters in European legal history by R. C. van Caenegem( Book )

59 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Judges, legislators and professors one of the world's foremost legal historians shows how and why continental and common law have come to diverge so sharply. Using ten specific examples he investigates the development of European law, not as the manifestation of certain ideological and intellectual trends, but as largely the result of power struggles between the judiciary, the legislators, and legal scholars, each representing certain political and social ambitions. Now available in paperback, Judges, legislators and professors provides an historical introduction to continental law which is readily accessible to readers familiar with the common law tradition and vice-versa
An historical introduction to western constitutional law by R. C. van Caenegem( Book )

31 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special attention is devoted to the rise of the rule of law, and of constitutional, parliamentary and federal forms of government. The Anglo-American contribution to the ascendancy of present-day liberal democracy is underlined, but the latter's rejection by twentieth-century totalitarian regimes also receives extensive treatment. The epilogue discusses the future of liberal democracy as a universal model
