Legalism: anthropology and history

Starting with the concept of legalism, leading historians and anthropologists with an interest in law gather to analyse the nature and meaning of law in diverse societies. The essays make obvious the need to question our parochial common sense where ideals of moral order at other times and places differ from those of modern North Atlantic governance.
