About the Authors
  • Frederick William Maitland (1850–1906) is generally regarded as the modern father of English legal history. In this volume, which was originally published in 1898, Maitland discusses the development of English towns, and the concurrent transition from rural to urban habits which occurred amongst the townspeople. The text was produced as the companion volume to The Ford Lectures, which were given by Maitland during 1897. Consummately researched, it is distinguished by the thorough and sensitive use of primary sources which is characteristic of Maitland's work, a sensitivity that is combined with a lively and engaging written style. This is a fascinating book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in legal history and the process of urbanisation.
