Macfarlane, A. (2002). F.W. Maitland and the Making of the Modern World. [Book]. http://www.dspace.cam.ac.uk/handle/1810/195762
The first edition of this book was as part of The Making of the Modern World; Visions from the West and East (2002). Perhaps partly because the book contained a great deal else, a chapter on Maine, another on Durkheim, and seven chapters on the Japanese philosophical reformer Yukichi Fukuzawa, it was not only expensive, but the Maitland sections were somewhat overlaid. It was ever published in paper covers. This book is now made available for those who are more specifically interested in Maitland’s contribution to solving the mystery of how our modern world emerged. I have not updated the ideas or references, although a number of books have come out since I wrote it. I have merely re-arranged the first and 4 last chapters, and omitted the chapters on Maine and Durkheim. I have also made some minor alterations to grammar and tried to make several ideas a little clearer.
