Immediately acclaimed as one of the most importantcontributions to European legal history, Felony andMisdemeanor has a broader scope than its title suggests. Itis a history of the legal institutions in the FrankishEmpire, Normandy and pre-conquest England and theircontributions to the formation of Anglo-American privatelaw, public law and judicial administration. It is also asocial and political history of the early Middle Ages. Thiswork, complete in itself, was intended to have a secondvolume which was never published. Reviewing this book in1938 for the Harvard Law Review, Max Radin said it was "oneof the most notable contributions to European legal historythat has been made anywhere in recent years" and "a first-rate achievement" (51:1463, 1465).
