About The Making of Modern Law

Subject Access provided by the WUSTL Law Library. The Making of Modern Law, one of the most significant digital collections of legal history, is now a part of our online collection. Described by Gale/Thomson as "...covering the watershed period of legal development during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this unprecedented archive is the world's most comprehensive full-text collection of Anglo-American legal treatises of the period. Derived from two essential reference collections for historical and more contemporary legal studies—the Nineteenth-Century Legal Treatises and Twentieth-Century Legal Treatises microfilm collections, published by Thomson Gale® imprint Primary Source Microfilm,The Making of Modern Law features a fully searchable database of approximately 10 million pages and more than 21,000 works."
