This unique publication offers a complete history of Roman law, from its early beginnings through to its resurgence in Europe where it was widely applied until the eighteenth century. Besides a detailed overview of the sources of Roman law, the book also includes sections on private and criminal law and procedure, with special attention given to those aspects of Roman law that have particular importance to today's lawyer. The last three chapters of the book offer an overview of the history of Roman law from the early Middle Ages to modern times and illustrate the way in which Roman law furnished the basis of contemporary civil law systems. In this part, special attention is given to the factors that warranted the revival and subsequent reception of Roman law as the ‘common law’ of Continental Europe. Combining the perspectives of legal history with those of social and political history, the book can be profitably read by students and scholars, as well as by general readers with an interest in ancient and early European legal history. The civil law tradition is the oldest legal tradition in the world today, embracing many legal systems currently in force in Continental Europe, Latin America and other parts of the world. Despite the considerable differences in the substantive laws of civil law countries, a fundamental unity exists between them. The most obvious element of unity is the fact that the civil law systems are all derived from the same sources and their legal institutions are classified in accordance with a commonly accepted scheme existing prior to their own development, which they adopted and adapted at some stage in their history. Roman law is both in point of time and range of influence the first catalyst in the evolution of the civil law tradition.

Um der gestiegenen wirtschaftlichen Bedeutung des Landes gerecht zu werden, beschloss der Nationale Volkskongress der Volksrepublik China, bis 2020 ein marktwirtschaftlich orientiertes Zivilgesetzbuch zu schaffen. Erster Schritt war der Erlass der General Rules of Civil Law im März 2017, eines neuen Allgemeinen Teils für das Zivilrecht. Im Rahmen einer Tagung der Forschungsstelle für chinesisches Recht an der Universität Augsburg diskutierten chinesische und deutsche Rechtswissenschaftler im Juli 2017 Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede der Rechtsordnungen sowie deren gesellschaftliche und politischen Hintergründe. Ein besonderes Augenmerk wurde auf die Teilbereiche Allgemeine Rechtsprinzipien, natürliche und juristische Personen, Recht der Willenserklärungen und das Haftungsrecht gelegt. Die Ergebnisse präsentiert der nun vorliegende Tagungsband. Er konzentriert sich auf verschiedene Teilbereiche der Reform und stellt diese aus chinesischer und bisweilen auch aus deutscher Perspektive dar. Außerdem enthält der Band den originalen chinesischen Gesetzestext der General Rules of Civil Law, sowie eine synoptisch dazu dargestellte englisch- und deutschsprachige Übersetzung des Gesetzestextes. Mit Beiträgen von Prof. Dr. Hao Li; Prof. Dr. Thomas M.J. Möllers; Prof. Dr. Hongjie Man; Prof. Dr. Raphael Koch; Finn Mrugalla; Prof. Dr. Tong Zhang; Prof. Dr. Michael Kort; Dr. Tianfan Wang; Qiangzhi Hu; Prof. Dr. Guangyu Fu; Dr. Jing Jin; Dr. Jieqiong Li.

Domat, Jean [1625-1696].The Civil Law in its Natural Order: Together with the Publick Law. Written in French by Monsieur Domat, The Late French King's Advocate in the Presidial Court of Clermont in France: And Translated into English by William Strahan, LL.D. Advocate in Doctor's Commons. With Additional Remarks on Some Material Differences between the Civil Law and the Law of England. London: Printed by J. Bettenham for E. Bell [et al.], 1722. 2 Vols. Folio (9" x 13"). Reprinted 2008 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 978-1-58477-870-7. ISBN-10: 1-58477-870-9. Cloth. $395.* First complete edition in English. Domat's Civil Law is a great work that combines the materials of Roman and French law into a single system and places it on a foundation of ethical principles. "The Civil Law in its Natural Order, considering the age and the circumstances in which it was written, is a truly wonderful performance. His method is excellent, and his matter clear, exact, and comprehensive. Pothier, and other continental jurists, have drawn largely upon him to assist their own labors" (Marvin). Holdsworth says this edition is better than Wood's incomplete 1705 translation. "Strahan's translation...is a very much more considerable book, both as a book on Roman law, and, by reason of the translator's notes, as a book on comparative law.": Holdsworth, History of English Law XII:428. Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 271.
