- The question of whether there are laws in the primitive society has always attracted the attention of scholars of different subjects. Jurists are particularly concerns about this issue because it involves a series of jurisprudential major issues such as the origin, essence and role of law. Until today, scholars still do not have a unified understanding of it. But the book The Law of Primitive Man, written by E. Adamson Hoebel, the famous American legal anthropologist, gives his answer affirmatively. Many advantages such as the richness of the data, the systemic discussion of basic method of legal anthropology research, the difference between the original law and the modern law, the exploration of the regular pattern of law development and deep insights of the functions of the law can be seen in this book. It is undoubtedly such a valuable book that it is worth reading. But because of its many of the arguments in the book inevitably having its own prejudices and limitations, the readers should pay attention to them while reading.
