In this original reinterpretation of the legal status of foreigners in medieval England, Keechang Kim proposes a radically new understanding of the genesis of the modern legal regime and the important distinction between citizens and noncitizens. Making full use of medieval and early modern sources, the book examines how feudal legal arguments were transformed by the political theology of the Middle Ages to become the basis of the modern legal outlook. This innovative study will interest academics, lawyers, and students of legal history, immigration and minority issues.

Review:

"Kim's book...opens a new field and invites people to look at many new issues or revisit familiar ones." Speculum

"This book is in many respects admirable. Kim phrases his arguments very clearly. His analysis of the medieval beginnings of alien law is historically informed and sensitive. His comments on the difference between legal and historical thinking have relevance beyond the subject he treats here." Albion

"Keechang Kim's perspective makes an important contribution to an understanding of the position of aliens in English law." Law and History Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This reinterpretation of the legal status of foreigners in medieval England boldly rejects the canonical view which has for centuries dominated the imagination of historians and laymen alike. Keechang Kim proposes an understanding of the genesis of the modern legal regime and the important distinction between citizens and non-citizens. Making full use of medieval and early modern sources, Kim offers a compelling argument that the late medieval changes in legal treatment of foreigners are vital to an understanding of the shift of focus from status to the State, and that the historical foundation of the modern state system should be sought in this shift of outlook. The book contains a re-evaluation of the legal aspects of feudalism, examining, in particular, how the feudal legal arguments were transformed by the political theology of the Middle Ages to become the basis of the modern legal outlook.
