The transformation of American law, 1780-1860 by Morton J Horwitz( )

44 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Previous historical studies have viewed law and policy as an accurate reflection of the needs of an undifferentiated society. In The Transformation of American Law, Horwitz successfully challenges this misconception and shows how, in the eighty years after the American Revolution, a major change in law took place in which aspects of social struggle turned to legal channels for resolution. Looking into the distribution of wealth and power during this time, Horwitz finds indeed that the change in legal ideology enabled commercial groups to win a disproportionate amount of wealth and power in American society. An accessible account of the history of law, this is a powerful statement on the great role of the legal system in American economic development."--Jacket

Transformations in American legal history : essays in honor of professor Morton J. Horwitz( Book )

19 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Transformations in American Legal History is the first of two volumes of essays by Morton J. Horwitz's students, colleagues, and friends. The essays are inspired by Horwitz's extensive interest, ranging from colonial America to civil rights in the twentieth century Israel's connections to American law, and the methodology of legal history." "In this book, Horwitz's students reexamine legal history from America's colonial era to the late twentieth century. They ask classic Horwitzian questions of how legal doctrine, thought, and practice are shaped by the interests of the powerful, as well as by the ideas of lawyers, politicians, and others. The essays address current questions in legal history, from colonial legal practice to questions of empire, civil rights, and constitutionalism in a democracy. The essays are, like Horwitz's own work, provocative and original as they continue his transformation of American legal history."--BOOK JACKET
Law, society, and history : themes in the legal sociology and legal history of Lawrence M. Friedman( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book assembles essays on legal sociology and legal history by an international group of distinguished scholars. All of them have been influenced by the eminent and prolific legal historian, legal sociologist, and scholar of comparative law, Lawrence M. Friedman. Not just a Festschrift of essays by colleagues and disciples, this volume presents a sustained examination and application of Friedman's ideas and methods. Some of the writers directly assess and comment on Friedman's vast body of work, while others examine his conclusions to see how well they have stood up over time. Various contributors apply concepts and insights derived from Friedman's work to the study of similar problems in different periods and societies. And others use Friedman's concepts and insights as a foil or contrast to their own approaches to studying law and society from theoretical perspectives very different from his. Together, the essays in this volume show the powerful ripple effects of Friedman's work on American and comparative legal sociology, American and comparative legal history, and the general sociology of law and legal change"--
