For, on the whole, it had little that could be of use to an English teacher,13 and even less to an English (or non-American) practitioner or court. And as one moved further eastwards onto the Continent, its relevance became minuscule. The impact, which the book has thus had in England, and on the European Continent more generally,14 has thus been much, much smaller than that which it had on its home turf.

But he was neither a Roman lawyer nor an Englishman but, ﬁrst and foremost, a German legal sociologist and labour lawyer.

That he managed to do this while not losing the ability to write black letter law works on labour law, family law, and conﬂicts is a sign of his true genius.
