Mr. Palmer discusses the permanent effect of Roman law upon civilization. The entire Western world owes a great debt to the sixth-century compilers of the Corpus Juris Civilis, and Mr. Palmer shows that not only is Roman law still the basic law in most of Europe, South America, and Louisiana, but it has also greatly influenced the common law of Britain and America.
