"Law and History Review"

From the Back Cover

The author presents a fresh interpretation of the history of inheritance among the English gentry and aristocracy. In a work that recasts both the history of real property law and the history of the family, she argues that one of the principal and determinative features of upper-class inheritance was the virtual exclusion of females from land holding.

4.0 out of 5 stars England's inheritance laws from medieval times to the renaissance 31 May 2015
By Samantha Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This will be a mixed review because I bought the book for a school paper that I was working on and was led to believe my information was in there but it was so minimal that the book wasn't helpful. I did do a quick glance through the book, though, and I would recommend it for the general subject matter. It's an extraordinary topic and the book covers it well, from what I could see on a quick review.
