About This Item

2014. ISBN-13: 9781584771425; ISBN-10: 1584771429. Berger, Adolf. Encyclopedic Dictionary of Roman Law. Originally published: Philadelphia: The American Philosophical Society, [1953]. (Transactions of the American Philosophical Society; New Series, Volume 43, Part 2, 1953). [ii], 333-808 pp. Reprinted 2002, 2014 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584771425; ISBN-10: 1584771429. 8-1/2" x 11." Hardcover. New. $49.95 * A comprehensive reference that includes a useful English-Latin law glossary and an extensive bibliography (centered on English-language publications) that covers all of the dictionary's topics. A formidable research tool. "This dictionary is intended to meet the needs of the student with little or no knowledge of Roman law or indeed of Latin. It seeks to provide a brief picture of Roman legal institutions and sources as a sort of first introduction to them. A very large number of brief-usually very brief-entries provide explanations of Roman legal terms, civil and criminal, and summary accounts of the sources. This is a formidable task to undertake single-handed, and Dr. Berger is to be congratulated on the great learning and thoroughness with which he has carried it through. (...) The extensive bibliographies at the end of each entry of any substance are intended for the advanced reader who will find them invaluable, though sometimes, where the subject covered is wide, he will wish they were classified. (...) The works ends with a remarkable general bibliography listing some fifteen hundred works under headings ranging from the main divisions of the law to 'Christianity and Roman Law' and 'Roman law in non-juristic sources.' This last is particularly valuable." -- Barry Nicholas, 44 Journal of Roman Studies (1954) 160. "The publication of Mr. Adolf Berger's encyclopedic dictionary of Roman law is a very important accomplishment in the recent history of American legal scholarship. The American legal world owes him homage for putting at its disposal the scholarship of twentieth-century European Romanism, or indicating the entrances thereto." -- Mitchell Franklin, 28 Tulane Law Review (1953-1954) 412.
