Book News Annotation:
The centralized courts of law in late medieval Europe would not have developed so rapidly without the monetary and emotional investment of ordinary users of the law, says Smail (history, Fordham U.). He asks why they did so, and finds at core not a reasoned preference for rationality, but the pursuit of grudges.
