Description : Some of the most exciting and innovative legal scholarship has been driven by historical curiosity. Legal history today comes in a fascinating array of shapes and sizes, from microhistory to global intellectual history. Legal history has expanded beyond traditional parochial boundaries to become increasingly international and comparative in scope and orientation. Drawing on scholarship from around the world, and representing a variety of methodological approaches, areas of expertise, and research agendas, this timely compendium takes stock of legal history and methodology and reflects on the various modes of the historical analysis of law, past, present, and future. Part I explores the relationship between legal history and other disciplinary perspectives including economic, philosophical, comparative, literary, and rhetorical analysis of law. Part II considers various approaches to legal history, including legal history as doctrinal, intellectual, or social history. Part III focuses on the interrelation between legal history and jurisprudence by investigating the role and conception of historical inquiry in various models, schools, and movements of legal thought. Part IV traces the place and pursuit of historical analysis in various legal systems and traditions across time, cultures, and space. Finally, Part V narrows the Handbooks focus to explore several examples of legal history in action, including its use in various legal doctrinal contexts.

Description : Beginning in 2016 Lund University in Sweden celebrated its 350 years of existence. In 1666 the new university got its constitution, and January 28 1668 the university was inaugurated. The Law Faculty celebrated the event with several seminars and symposia. In November 2017, the legal historians in Lund arranged an international symposium dedicated to the doctores honoris causæ elected within the discipline of legal history at the Law Faculty. The topic of the historiographical symposium concerned the impact of and interaction with the nine Nordic, European and American scholars who received their honorary degrees at the Law Faculty from 1990 up to today. This book is dedicated to them.

Description : In this insightful book, the most respected names in legal publishing envision what changes the next century holds for the publication of legal information. Approximately 100 years ago, as comprehensive publication of legal cases began, the major legal publishing houses described their view of legal literature in a “Symposium of Law Publishers”. Today's technological innovations, coupled with a resurgence of competition that has revived entrepreneurial dynamism in legal publishing, have created the need for a second such effort. Symposium of Law Publishers commemorates the spirit of the first symposium by examining the state of legal publishing today and what advances can be expected in the new century. Representatives of fourteen legal publishers give an in-depth view of the field and its future. In a unique additional feature, four law librarians provide an alternative view of the future of legal publishing. Symposium of Law Publishers examines information technologies primarily as a means to deliver information to the legal profession quickly, comprehensively, inexpensively, or accessibly, and predict that libraries and books will remain the core of legal information. The contributors discuss the new competitive spirit in the law publishing industry and the need for a response to increased globalization and specialization in the law profession. Other important topics addressed in this groundbreaking book include the future of case publication, electronic publishing and the future of research, citation systems in the future, and the survival of loose-leaf services. Professionals concerned with any aspect of legal publishing will be better prepared for future changes with the help of this fascinating book. Law librarians, data base specialists, and information theory specialists will also find Symposium of Law Publishers an invaluable introduction to the next century of legal publishing.

Description : Historians used to imagine empire as an imperial power extending total domination over its colonies. Now, however, they understand empire as a site in which colonies and their constitutions were regulated by legal pluralism: layered and multicentric systems of law, which incorporated or preserved the law of conquered subjects. By placing the study of law in diverse early modern empires under the rubric of legal pluralism, Legal Pluralism and Empires, 1500-1850 offers both legal scholars and historians a much-needed framework for analyzing the complex and fluid legal politics of empires. Contributors analyze how ideas about law moved across vast empires, how imperial agents and imperial subjects used law, and how relationships between local legal practices and global ones played themselves out in the early modern world. The book’s tremendous geographical breadth, including the British, French, Spanish, Ottoman, and Russian empires, gives readers the most comparative examination of legal pluralism to date. Lauren Benton is Professor of History, Affiliated Professor of Law, and Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Science at New York University. Her books include A Search for Sovereignty: Law and Geography in European Empires, 1400-1900 and Law and Colonial Cultures: Legal Regimes in World History, 1400-1900. Richard J. Ross is Professor of Law and History at the University of Illinois (Urbana/Champaign) and Director of the Symposium on Comparative Early Modern Legal History. With Steven Wilf, he is currently working on a book, entitled: The Beginnings of American Law: A Comparative Study.

Description : L'échange, comme système de transaction entre individus ou communautés humaines, s'applique d'abord aux bien matériels, mais exprime aussi d'autres modalités d'interaction, symboliques, philosophiques ou idéologiques. Le présent ouvrage se penche sur la façon dont se présente ou se représente l'activité d'échange en Amérique du Nord, traditionnel carrefour de cultures et lieu de mélanges, où se sont élaborés, à mi-chemin entre Europe et Pacifique, bien des paradigmes du contact, de l'échange et du progrès. On trouvera ici un assortiment de textes qui examinent aussi bien la pratique concrète de l'échange - commercial ou culturel - que ses manifestations imaginaires. Chronologiquement, ces essais couvrent une période qui court de l'exploration de Lewis et Clark jusqu'à l'ère de l'Internet. On y aborde les relations ethniques, notamment avec les tribus indiennes, et les conditions régionales ou locales de l'échange, par exemple du côté de la frontière mexicaine, ou de la Californie, ou dans les îles du Pacifique. Le lecteur entame ainsi un périple qui le conduit des zones-frontières continentales jusqu'au-delà des océans, des banlieues aux grands espaces de l'Ouest, sans pour autant oublier les grands voyages de l'esprit que garantissent les grandes œuvres littéraires ou la musique. L'idée-force qui se dégage de ce volume, c'est la nécessaire revalorisation de l'échange comme moyen d'entente entre les peuples, comme support d'une idéologie transnationale fondée sur la compréhension et l'équilibre des intérêts, afin que cessent les exclusions et s'apaisent les rancœurs dans un contexte mondial d'interdépendances accrues.

Description : This is a study of the central role of history in late-nineteenth century American legal thought. In the decades following the Civil War, the founding generation of professional legal scholars in the United States drew from the evolutionary social thought that pervaded Western intellectual life on both sides of the Atlantic. Their historical analysis of law as an inductive science rejected deductive theories and supported moderate legal reform, conclusions that challenge conventional accounts of legal formalism Unprecedented in its coverage and its innovative conclusions about major American legal thinkers from the Civil War to the present, the book combines transatlantic intellectual history, legal history, the history of legal thought, historiography, jurisprudence, constitutional theory, and the history of higher education.

Description : Fathers of Conscience examines high-court decisions in the antebellum South that involved wills in which white male planters bequeathed property, freedom, or both to women of color and their mixed-race children. These men, whose wills were contested by their white relatives, had used trusts and estates law to give their slave partners and children official recognition and thus circumvent the law of slavery. The will contests that followed determined whether that elevated status would be approved or denied by courts of law. Bernie D. Jones argues that these will contests indicated a struggle within the elite over race, gender, and class issues--over questions of social mores and who was truly family. Judges thus acted as umpires after a man's death, deciding whether to permit his attempts to provide for his slave partner and family. Her analysis of these differing judicial opinions on inheritance rights for slave partners makes an important contribution to the literature on the law of slavery in the United States.

Description : A historical and legal examination of the conflict and interplay between settler and indigenous laws in the New World As British and Iberian empires expanded across the New World, differing notions of justice and legality played out against one another as settlers and indigenous people sought to negotiate their relationship. In order for settlers and natives to learn from, maneuver, resist, or accommodate each other, they had to grasp something of each other's legal ideas and conceptions of justice. This ambitious volume advances our understanding of how natives and settlers in both the British and Iberian New World empires struggled to use the other’s ideas of law and justice as a political, strategic, and moral resource. In so doing, indigenous people and settlers alike changed their own practices of law and dialogue about justice. Europeans and natives appealed to imperfect understandings of their interlocutors’ notions of justice and advanced their own conceptions during workaday negotiations, disputes, and assertions of right. Settlers’ and indigenous peoples’ legal presuppositions shaped and sometimes misdirected their attempts to employ each other’s law. Natives and settlers construed and misconstrued each other's legal commitments while learning about them, never quite sure whether they were on solid ground. Chapters explore the problem of “legal intelligibility”: How and to what extent did settler law and its associated notions of justice became intelligible—tactically, technically and morally—to natives, and vice versa? To address this question, the volume offers a critical comparison between English and Iberian New World empires. Chapters probe such topics as treaty negotiations, land sales, and the corporate privileges of indigenous peoples. Ultimately, Justice in a New World offers both a deeper understanding of the transformation of notions of justice and law among settlers and indigenous people, and a dual comparative study of what it means for laws and moral codes to be legally intelligible.

Description : A Judgment for Solomon tells the story of the d'Hauteville case, a controversial child custody battle fought in 1840. It uses the story of one couple's bitter fight over their son to explore some timebound and timeless features of American legal culture. In a narrative analysis, it recounts how marital woes led Ellen and Gonzalve d'Hauteville into what Alexis de Tocqueville called the 'shadow of the law'. Their multiple legal experiences culminated in an eagerly followed Philadelphia trial that sparked a national debate over the legal rights and duties of mothers and fathers, and husbands and wives. The story of the d'Hauteville case explains why popular trials become 'precedents of legal experience' - mediums for debates about highly contested social issues. It also demonstrates the ability of individual women and men to contribute to legal change by turning to the law to fight for what they want.

Description : In Reconstructing the Household, Peter Bardaglio examines the connections between race, gender, sexuality, and the law in the nineteenth-century South. He focuses on miscegenation, rape, incest, child custody, and adoption laws to show how southerners struggled with the conflicts and stresses that surfaced within their own households and in the larger society during the Civil War era. Based on literary as well as legal sources, Bardaglio's analysis reveals how legal contests involving African Americans, women, children, and the poor led to a rethinking of families, sexuality, and the social order. Before the Civil War, a distinctive variation of republicanism, based primarily on hierarchy and dependence, characterized southern domestic relations. This organic ideal of the household and its power structure differed significantly from domestic law in the North, which tended to emphasize individual rights and contractual obligations. The defeat of the Confederacy, emancipation, and economic change transformed family law and the governance of sexuality in the South and allowed an unprecedented intrusion of the state into private life. But Bardaglio argues that despite these profound social changes, a preoccupation with traditional notions of gender and race continued to shape southern legal attitudes.
