4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview.
Barry Nicholas's book on Roman law is certainly the classic among all textbooks on the subject. It begins with a historical sketch and continues then with status, property and obligations laws. Most of the texts are easy to understand and "keep it simple"; rarely does one feel confused by what Nicholas writes.
As might be expected, this introductory textbook...

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay
Good book, impossible to get new and unfortunately on my reading list. I was a little disappointed as I paid extra for this second-hand version as it was labelled as 'like new'. It had highlighting on some sections, some pages fell aout and it was very dog-eared. I don't really mind but I would have preferred honest labelling.

This review is from: An Introduction to Roman Law (Clarendon Law Series) (Paperback)
Barry Nicholas's book on Roman law is certainly the classic among all textbooks on the subject. It begins with a historical sketch and continues then with status, property and obligations laws. Most of the texts are easy to understand and "keep it simple"; rarely does one feel confused by what Nicholas writes.
As might be expected, this introductory textbook does not cover all aspects of Roman law; readers who use this as a textbook for university courses are well-advised not to rely solely upon it. A more detailed and equally easy to understand book is Andrew Borkowsky's "Textbook on Roman Law" (3rd edn, with Paul du Plessis). Yet Nicholas's book is certainly a very good choice to gain an overall idea of Roman law.

Every law student has some compulsory roman law course they are forced to do. I bought this book because there aren't that many out there and this was nice and short and seemed accessible. To tell the truth i never really used it, i didn't find it to be of much help from an actual study perspective. I know students often feel compelled to have at least one book for a subject but for roman law i wouldn't say you need this one.
