Administrative Law

Its Growth, Procedure, and Significance

Roscoe Pound (1870-1964) is acknowledged as the founder of sociological jurisprudence-an interdisciplinary approach to legal concepts in which the law is recognized as a dynamic system that is influenced by social conditions and that, in turn, influences society as a whole.

Young provides a “biography” of the greatest of the classical legends, the story of the fall of Troy. Young’s text is beautifully illustrated with examples of art inspired by the legend, from literature, painting, ceramics, tapestry, sculpture, and the opera, with fresh interpretations of their meaning. In deepening our knowledge of classic texts and their changing interpretations over time, Young argues, we enhance our understanding both of the classics and of the successive civilizations they have influenced.
