Designed for the general reader, this is a concise history and analysis of the civil law tradition, which is dominant in most of Western Europe, all of Latin America, and many parts of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The second edition describes changes in civil law procedures since the book was first published in 1969, and includes a new chapter on the future of the civil law tradition.

Review:

'Professor Merryman's little book is not only readable - a feat in itself - but also insightful and provocative in its treatment of the folklore and practice of the civil law ... A lively introduction to civil law thinking with its historical, political, and social dimensions.' The American Journal of Comparative Law
