A reprint of the 1974 edition (Scottish Academic Press). Highly controversial then and now, Watson's argument is that a society's laws do not usually develop from within, but are borrowed from other societies. A new (12 pp.) afterword by Watson places the study in the context of recent scholarship, and offers some new reflections. No index. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
