Ulpian by Tony Honoré( Book )

50 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 729 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'."--BOOK JACKET
Emperors and lawyers by Tony Honoré( Book )

51 editions published between 1980 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 717 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

About law : an introduction by Tony Honoré( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 414 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

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 )

33 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 362 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."--BOOK JACKET
Responsibility and fault by Tony Honoré( Book )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These highly original essays develop themes implicit in Herbert Hart and the author's Causation in the Law,2nd ed. 1985;. Why should we be held responsible for the harm we cause? Honor 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 t
