Free Book of the Month: Lectures on the Early History of Institutions

Lectures on the Early History of Institutions is another classic work by Henry Sumner Maine.  We’ve featured another of his works; Ancient Law, on a previous post.  Lectures on the Early History of Institutions is the sequel to Ancient Law and is just as engaging.


Selected Quote: Law, in its most general and comprehensive sense, signifies a rule of action ; and is applied indiscriminately to all kinds of action, whether animate or inanimate, rational or irrational.
