Causation in the law by H. L. A Hart( Book )

99 editions published between 1959 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 1,593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The starting point of the first edition of this work (published in 1959) was the claim that courts in determining legal responsibility employ common-sense notions of causation. It made explicit what these notions were, and how they are related to the causal theories of Mill and Hume on the one hand, and to the actual decisions of courts and the arguments of legal theorists on the other. In the new edition, the first five chapters on 'The Analysis of Causal Concepts' are largely unchanged, but a Preface of 50 pages deals with legal (and philosophical) criticisms of the first edition. It seeks to vindicate common-sense causal criteria as an element in legal responsibility, against causal minimalists who identify causal connection with sine qua non, and causal maximists who would make causal connection a necessary and sufficient condition of responsibility. It outlines a rationale of this middle way. The legal material has been revised and account has been taken of several hundred decisions reached since the first edition. A striking feature of these decisions is the extent to which they conform to common-sense causal criteria even when they purport to be based on foreseeability, risk, adequacy, or other distinct notions, and hence confirm the soundness of the analysis advanced in 1959
Ulpian by Tony Honoré( Book )

57 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 1,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the second edition of Tony Honore's 1982 book on the life and works of Ulpian, the early third-century lawyer from Syria who contributed two-fifths of Justinian's sixth-century Digest, which for many centuries formed the staple of European legal education. His writing has been at least as influential as that of any other lawyer, ancient or modern. As an intellectual in government he not only wrote about Roman law and administration, public and private, on a massive scale but also played a full part in the turbulent life of the Severan dynasty (193-235), until his murder by rebellious troops in 223 or 224 AD." "The book has been thoroughly revised in the light of recent scholarship and three new chapters added. The new edition stresses Ulpian's claim to be the first lawyer to champion human rights. He expounded Roman law to cosmopolitan society of his time, in which citizenship was extended to all free people in the empire, as a system based on reason and equity designed for people, including slaves, who were by nature free and equal. His voluminous works, mainly composed in 213-17 AD, were dictated in a conversational style. In dealing with legal problems they argue from example and analogy and appeal to considerations of utility and equity in a way not unlike that of Anglo-American lawyers." "The book examines Ulpian's style and method of work, distinguishes genuine works from those falsely attributed to him, and examines his claim that law is the true 'philosophy'."--Jacket
Emperors and lawyers by Tony Honoré( Book )

36 editions published between 1980 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the second edition of an original and controversial book. It analyses some 2,609 legal rulings (rescripts) given by Roman Emperors between 193 and 305 AD, and argues that, though issued in the name of emperors, they were really both in style and substance the work of professional lawyers. From their style we can detect when one lawyer-draftsman gave way to another, we can identify some of the lawyers and we can allot most of the rescripts to their real author. On this basis the author argues that in the third century there was a convention that the rights of citizens would be governed by objective legal standards: the Roman empire was not a pure autocracy. Updated and in large part rewritten, this edition includes on a high-density diskette a reconstruction (Palingenesia) of the 2,609 rescripts. This new and original work of reference will enable scholars to read the texts chronologically and to judge the soundness of the arguments advanced

Law in the crisis of empire, 379-455 AD : the Theodosian dynasty and its quaestors with a palingenesia of laws of the dynasty by Tony Honoré( Book )

35 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Honore, using his innovative method of analysis examines the laws of a crucial period of the late Roman empire (379-455 AD), a time when the west collapsed while the east survived. Wherever possible, he assigns each law to the likely imperial quaestor who drafted it. This approach yields a novel type of list of office holder (Fasti), in which each quaestor is associated with the laws he drafted. Honore shows why the eastern-inspired Theodosian Code (429-438 AD), intended to restore the legal and administrative unity of the Roman empire, came too late to save the west." "The book includes on disk a Palingenesia of the constitutions of the Theodosian Age. This valuable resource will enable scholars to read the texts chronologically and to judge the soundness of the arguments advanced."--Jacket
About law : an introduction by Tony Honoré( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is an introduction to the intellectual challenges presented by law in the western secular tradition. Treating not just British law, but the whole western tradition of law, Professor Honore guides the reader through eleven topics which straddle various branches of the law, including constitutional and criminal law, property, and contracts. He also explores moral and historical aspects of the law, including a discussion of justice and the difference between civil and common law systems. The law, Honore argues, is mainly concerned with the question of obedience to authority, and establishing the situations in which obedience is required and those in which it may be waived ought to be the central concern of all legal theorists

The legal mind : essays for Tony Honoré( Book )

13 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few contributors to legal thought have contributed on so broad a front as Tony Honoré, Regius Professor of Civil Law in the University of Oxford since 1971. No less energetic and productive than the great Roman jurists whom he has interpreted to the modern world, he has influenced the development of Roman-Dutch law, has altered perceptions of the form and content of Roman law, and has shown how comparative law can generate fresh insights and stimulate research. His work in analytical jurisprudence, and in moral and political philosophy, is continually cited by other scholars. In the study of texts, his sensitivity to the Latin language, to the habits of the legal mind in general, and the individuality of legal minds in particular, has combined with a determined numerate empiricism to produce revolutionary new methods as stimulating as they are controversial. For his sixty-fifth birthday, friends and colleagues, acknowledging the inspiration of his thought, seek to honor Honoré by exploring some aspects of the legal mind. -- preface

Responsibility and fault by Tony Honoré( Book )

29 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These essays develop themes implicit in Herbert Hart and the author's Causation in the Law. Why should we be held responsible for the harm we cause? Honore proposes a theory of responsibility ('Outcome Responsibility'), according to which, to be responsible, it is sufficient to have intervened in the world. To act and to be responsible is to assume certain risks, so that responsibility can be a matter of luck rather than fault or merit. Whether responsibility carries with it moral blame or legal liability is an important but secondary question. With the help of this theory he explains the moral basis of strict liability and of tort law in general; shows when there is a moral difference between positive acts and omissions; and indicates the extent to which the circumstances that cause a wrongdoer to do wrong should affect his responsibility."--BOOK JACKET
Justinian's Digest : character and compilation by Tony Honoré( Book )

23 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and English, Old and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a study of the character and compilation of Justinian's Digest, the main volume of Justinian's Corpus Iuris Civilis (528-534 AD). This is often considered as one of the most influential works in the history of Western culture. It remains significant, partly because it is still a part of the law in six countries in Southern Africa, and partly because of its role in the evolution over fifteen hundred years of the theory and practice of human rights--a theme explored in Professor Honore's previous book studying Ulpian (2nd ed, OUP 2002).The book gives a detailed account of the probable methods used in the compilation of the Digest and distinguishes the respective roles of imperial ministers, law professors, and advocates. It also examines the broader issues raised by the Digest's creation--how it was conceived by its compilers, its purpose, and its impact"--Publisher's website
