One of the distinctive features of this manual and the one which has especially commended itself to the attention of students, is the relative importance given to the historical development of the Roman law, as compared with the mere exposition of its technical rules. From the favorable reception given to this book by teachers of social and political science, it seems evident that the emphasis laid upon the use of the historical method has made more clear the value of this study as a branch of liberal education. Since the first appearance of this outline there has grown up a considerable body of new literature dealing with the history and principles of the Roman law. That the student may be kept abreast of the latest literature relating to this subject, it has seemed advisable in the present edition, not only to make certain changes in the body of the text, but especially to include, in the lists of references, citations to the most important recent authorities. These later authorities are cited in the concluding paragraph of the References appended to each chapter, and are also collected, with full titles, in a single supplementary list at the close of the volume. It is believed that these additional bibliographical aids will materially increase the present usefulness of this manual for advanced students of the Roman law. University of Rochester, January
