Rechtsgeschichte – Legal History 26 (2018) is now available

Journal of the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History, ed. by Thomas Duve and Stefan Vogenauer, Frankfurt am Main: Klostermann 2018, 529 p., ISSN 1619-4993, ISBN 978-3-456-04346-1, Open Access online edition:

Kicking off this year's issue are two Research contributions that take up comparative perspectives as well as provide overviews of their respective topics: Within the context of Europe, Joachim Rückert traces the invention of national legal histories, and Tay-sheng Wang deals with the legal history of Taiwan as well as the question of the autonomy of the local civil law. The Focus section consists of three different topics concerning the broader history of the Iberian monarchies: At the centre of »Convivencias«, we have contributions taking up legal-historical perspectives involving the coexistence of members from different cultures, religions and confessions. The second Focus brings together the research investigating the origins of the School of Salamanca and thereby draws attention to hitherto little known authors and texts. »The End of Empires« is the topic of the third Focus. The contributions span a broad spectrum: from the Spanish Empire to the Brazilian Empire and even to the Ottoman Empire. They attempt to emphasise the legal dimension of the history of empires, in particular, that of the 19th century. Book reviews on legal-historically relevant recent publications (in the variety of languages you have come to expect) regarding both the Focus topics just mentioned and much more have been assembled in the Critique section. Closing out the issue is Holger Knudsen's contribution in Marginalia, which is much more than a book review. Here, Knudsen takes the book »Helgoland« as the point of departure for an investigation of English colonial law-making.
In addition to the print edition, the issue is available online in Open Access on the journal’s website and will soon be searchable in the Internet Archive as well as in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
