The Law Library recently added a beautiful new book to its collection, The European Supreme Courts: A Portrait Through History.
Published in 2013 by Third Millennium Publishing in England, it provides a richly detailed historical portrait of high courts throughout western and central Europe, extending all the way to the Ottoman Empire and Turkey. It also describes the history and work of some of Europe’s important international courts, including the European Union’s Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights.
Beautiful photographs and digital reproductions of significant paintings, illustrations, and manuscripts greatly enhance the quality and richness of this title.
This book is shelved in the fourth-floor reference reading room, under the call number KJE5461 .E975 2013x.
