The book deals with the genesis, formation and development of two fundamental aspects of English Law, common on Law and Equity. The common Law laid down the rules governing cohabitation communities and human rights. Equity was the offspring of natural law designed to prevent and remedy injustice resulting from unconscionable conduct. English law including both common law and equity was introduced in former British Colonies and dominions. In most of them it was retained after independence. This is the principal legacy of English colonization of countries. The introduction, application and retention of English law is reflect in Cyprus, a former British colony.
