European law, both civil law and common law, has undergone several important phases of expansion around the world. European legal history is thus also a history of legal transplants and cultural borrowings that, until recently, largely ignored national legal historics as products of nineteenth-century historicism. The Handbook of European Legal History gives its readers an overview of the different phases of European legal history in the context of the current state of research and offers innovative perspectives on research issues that are currently being raised in the international debate. The manual pursues a broad approach to its subject at both the national and systemic levels. Unlike traditional European legal histories, which tend to focus on the “core” countries of Europe (especially Italy and Germany), the Europe of the Handbook is more diverse and nuanced, taking into account legal developments in Europe`s geographical “periphery” such as Scandinavia and Eastern Europe.

The manual covers all major periods, from ancient Greek law to the twenty-first century. Contributors include recognized leaders in the field, as well as emerging talent representing a wide range of legal systems, methods, areas of expertise and research programs. 23 J.
