Description

The theory of legal development propounded in this volume has been generally accepted; but it has been thought that, in his Fifth Chapter on Primitive Society and Ancient Law the Author has not done sufficient justice to investigations which appear to show the existence of states of society still more rudimentary than that vividly described in the Homeric lines quoted at page no, and ordinarily known as the Patriarchal State.
