    1. As a future law student, I read this book to help give me a very basic overview of the history of law. This book succeeds in doing just that. It gives a brief 1 page summary of 250 milestones in law. The book doesn’t give a ton of information for each milestone, but it does give enough to show the basic gist of it. Overall, I recommend this book to anyone who wants to get acquainted with law.

Roffen selects important events in the evolution of the law from Biblical times to today. Each event is summarized in a very readable one page statement. Each “case” is matched up with a work of art or a photograph that captures in non-verbal form the essence of the case. Lawyers and non-la [...]

    5. A great resource, however, I wish it also included the Laws of the Indies/ Leyes de Indias.

    6. Easy to read, 250 examples of movement in laws from BC to present. Beautiful pictures to illustrate each of the authors selections.
