BOOK: Robert W. GORDON, Taming the Past. Essays on Law in History and History in Law (Cambridge: University Press, 2017). ISBN: 9781316644003, pp. 446, $ 40.99

Lawyers and judges often make arguments based on history - on the authority of precedent and original constitutional understandings. They argue both to preserve the inspirational, heroic past and to discard its darker pieces - such as feudalism and slavery, the tyranny of princes and priests, and the subordination of women. In doing so, lawyers tame the unruly, ugly, embarrassing elements of the past, smoothing them into reassuring tales of progress. In a series of essays and lectures written over forty years, Robert W. Gordon describes and analyses how lawyers approach the past and the strategies they use to recruit history for present use while erasing or keeping at bay its threatening or inconvenient aspects. Together, the corpus of work featured in Taming the Past offers an analysis of American law and society and its leading historians since 1900.


Robert W. Gordon is a Professor of Law at Stanford University, California. He was President of the American Society for Legal History in 2000-2, has served on several bar association committees and task forces devoted to reform of the profession, and has previously taught at the University of Wisconsin, Yale University, Connecticut, Harvard University Massachusetts and the University of Oxford.

Book abstract:
This edited volume critically reassesses the history of international law studies in the Italian context. It addresses certain basic issues, including: How such studies have been impacted by global dynamics, in terms of theories, methodologies, or professional networks, and by context-dependent solutions based on local features, through a constant process of attrition and cross-fertilization; The extent to which historical and political turning points have influenced such studies, when scholars have been part of broader academic and public debates or even active participants as legal advisers or politicians; Whether international law has been used - or misused - by relevant actors in such contexts. Bringing together scholars specialized in international law and legal history, this volume first provides a historical examination of the theoretical legal analysis produced in the Italian context, exploring its main features and dissident voices. The second section assesses the impact on international law studies of key historical and political events involving Italy, both international and domestic, and, conversely, how such events have been influenced by international law evaluations. Finally, a concluding section places the preceding analysis within a broader and contemporary perspective. This volume thus intervenes in the growing debate on the need to explore international law from comparative and situated viewpoints, in the light of the perpetual pendulum between the center and periphery of the international legal system.

BOOK: Gian Savino PENE VIDARI, Storia del diritto in età medievale e moderna (Torino: Giappichelli, 2019). ISBN: 8892118358, pp. 312, € 31

Storia del diritto in età medievale e moderna


L’insegnamento della storia del diritto, collocato generalmente nel corso di studi magistrale a ciclo unico in Giurisprudenza al 1 anno, intende offrire al giovane che si sta formando un inquadramento delle vicende che hanno portato al diritto attuale. Il giovane studente alle prime armi con gli studi di giurisprudenza deve quindi procurarsi una visione d’insieme della storia del diritto, praticamente dal sec. V al sec. XXI: non è certo poco, nel breve lasso di tempo delle lezioni di un anno accademico.
È presupposta perciò la persistenza di un minimo di conoscenze storiche apprese in precedenza, recuperabili anche grazie ad alcune Cartine storiche e genealogie riportate sul sito d’appoggio al volume. La storia giuridica europea di oltre 1500 anni presenta molteplici aspetti: è necessario perciò effettuare delle scelte, data l’esiguità del tempo a disposizione. È stato questo il problema più difficile e delicato da superare nel volume. All’Autore è parso opportuno preferire quegli argomenti, che sono sembrati essenziali per la formazione di un attuale giurista. In questa prospettiva, ha considerato perciò maggiormente adatti quelli più legati ai nostri interessi presenti, o per la vicinanza cronologica o per l’attuale sensibilità, come quelli sulla posizione del legislatore, del giurista o del giudice entro l’ordinamento. Si tratta di una scelta senza dubbio opinabile, ma necessaria, se si devono purtroppo operare dei ‘tagli’ per cercare di restare nel ristretto ambito temporale ed oggettivo indicato. Questa indispensabile limitazione ai punti ritenuti essenziali ha comportato una compressione della parte più nozionistica, con l’avvertenza però che per illustrare i diversi concetti si deve pur sempre partire dall’analisi e dall’apprendimento di un certo numero di elementi.

ADVANCE ARTICLE: Chris RILEY, "The Hermit and the Boa Constrictor: Jeremy Bentham, Henry Brougham, and the Accessibility of Justice" (American Journal of Legal History)

(image source: Oxford Journals)

This article examines the particularly complex relationship between Jeremy Bentham and Henry Brougham, with reference to the respective schemes that they devised in the late 1820s and early 1830s for achieving accessible justice through a new network of local courts across England and Wales. For a considerable part of the first few decades of the nineteenth century, Bentham and Brougham remained great friends and allies, but their disagreements gradually intensified, most notably following Brougham's six-hour law reform speech in the House of Commons on 7 February 1828, the printing of his Local Courts Bill on 7 June 1830, and the beginning of his Lord Chancellorship on 22 November of the same year. By analysing Bentham's highly detailed annotated copies of Brougham's law reform speech and Local Courts Bill—as well as Bentham's articles in the Westminster Review, and a substantial portion of his unpublished writings—it is shown how Bentham's complete loss of faith in Brougham as a reformer and as a legislator led him from describing Brougham as his own grandson to calling him an enemy of the people and a serpent. It is argued that the severity of Bentham's criticisms of the then Lord Chancellor in print, and the personal nature of the insults that he levelled towards him in manuscript, effectively dispel any suggestion that the two men were acting in concert on the issue of law reform in general, or on the matter of local courts in particular.

Via the Portail universitaire du droit, we learned of the publication of an edited collection on law in the Austro-Hungarian Empire (with contributions in French and German).


Dans la deuxième moitié du 19e siècle, Vienne et Budapest sont devenues deux grandes capitales intellectuelles de l'Europe. L'Autriche-Hongrie est aussi à l'origine d'évolutions quelque peu oubliées en Europe occidentale, avec notamment une contribution exceptionnelle au développement de la culture juridique européenne. Les juristes de différentes nationalités, actifs dans l'Empire austro-hongrois, jouèrent un rôle majeur dans le développement du droit et de la science du droit en Europe. L'ouvrage, regroupant les rapports presentés au colloque tenu a Strasbourg les 17 et 18 novembre 2017, a pour but de rappeler quelques éléments particulièrement importants de cette contribution.

BOOK: Max Wai Lun WONG, Chinese Marriage and Social Change - The Legal Abolition of Concubinage in Hong Kong (Cham: Springer, 2020). ISBN 978-981-15-1643-6, EUR 83,19

(Source: Springer)

Springer is publishing a new book on the legal history of the abolition of concubinage in Hong Kong.

This book provides a comparative account of the abolition of concubinage in East Asia, offering a new perspective and revised analysis of the factors leading to – and the debates surrounding  – the introduction of a new Marriage Reform Ordinance in Hong Kong in 1971. It uses this law as a platform to examine how the existence of concubinage – long preserved in the name of protecting Chinese traditions and customs — crucially influenced family law reforms, which were in response to a perceived need to create a ‘modern’ marriage system within Hong Kong’s Chinese community after the Second World War. This was, by and large, the result of continued pressure from within Hong Kong and from Britain to bring Hong Kong’s marriage system in line with international marriage treaties. It represented one of the last significant intrusions of colonial law into the private sphere of Hong Kong social life, eliminating Chinese customs which had been previously recognised by the colonial legal system’s family law. This book contextualizes the Hong Kong situation by examining judicial cases interpreting Chinese customs and the Great Qing Code, offering a comprehensive understanding of the Hong Kong situation in relation to the status of concubines in Republican China and other East Asian jurisdictions. It will be of particular interest to teachers and students of law, as well as researchers in gender studies, post-colonialism, sociology and cultural studies.


Dr. Max Wai Lun Wong is an Assistant Professor at the School of Modern Languages and Cultures at the University of Hong Kong. He holds a PhD from SOAS, University of London. He is an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators in the UK. His research interests include Law and Public Administration, Chinese Customary Law and Practice in South East Asia, Law and Creative Industries and Traditional Cultural Expression and Law in South East Asia.

Book abstract:
The essays in Powerful Arguments reconstruct the standards of validity underlying argumentative practices in a wide array of late imperial Chinese discourses, from the Song through the Qing dynasties. The fourteen case studies analyze concrete arguments defended or contested in areas ranging from historiography, philosophy, law, and religion to natural studies, literature, and the civil examination system. By examining uses of evidence, habits of inference, and the criteria by which some arguments were judged to be more persuasive than others, the contributions recreate distinct cultures of reasoning. Together, they lay the foundations for a history of argumentative practice in one of the richest scholarly traditions outside of Europe and add a chapter to the as yet elusive global history of rationality.

On the editors:
Martin Hofmann, Ph.D. (2007) is Assistant Professor for East Asian Intellectual History at Heidelberg University’s Centre for Asian and Transcultural Studies. He has mainly published on historical cartography, practices of argumentation, and the text-image relation in late imperial China. Joachim Kurtz, Ph.D. (2003), is Professor of Intellectual History at Heidelberg University.

ADVANCE ARTICLE: Manuel Galvis MARTINEZ, 'The Historical Evolution of Allegiance During Occupation' (American Journal of Legal History)

(image source: Wikimedia Commons)

The article traces the historical evolution of an understudied area of International Humanitarian Law (IHL): the rules on allegiance during occupation. By mapping state practice and scholarly opinions, the article shows the abandonment of the automatic transfer of the population’s allegiance to the occupant in favour of other theories. Nonetheless, the discussions surrounding this topic show a general struggle to label the relation between inhabitants and occupiers, and a general rejection of any theory that directly or indirectly presumes sovereignty of the occupier over the inhabitants. The article presents an element that is rarely included in debates on allegiance and occupation, i.e. the efforts of states to reinforce their sovereignty over occupied population through criminal prosecution of those who collaborated with the occupant. Finally, contemporary practice aimed at bypassing the regulations is presented as incongruent with the rules regarding occupation in the Geneva Conventions. Despite the landmarks achieved in regulating the matter, the article shows that many aspects remain under discussion and formation. Furthermore, many current rules, practices and discussions only serve the interests of states and are oblivious of the hardships faced by individuals under occupation.

BOOK: Kate BATES, Crime, Broadsides and Social Change, 1800-1850 (London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2020). ISBN 978-1-137-59789-2, 63,59 EUR

(Source: Palgrave)

Palgrave is publishing a book on the form, function and meaning of crime and execution broadsides printed in nineteenth-century Britain.


This book explores the form, function and meaning of crime and execution broadsides printed in nineteenth-century Britain. By presenting a detailed discourse analysis of 650 broadsides printed across Britain between the years 1800-1850, this book provides a unique and alternative interpretation as to their narratives of crime. This criminological interpretation is based upon the social theories of Emile Durkheim, who recognised the higher utility of crime and punishment as being one of social integration and the preservation of moral boundaries. The central aim of this book is to show that broadsides relating to crime and punishment served as a form of moral communication for the masses and that they are examples of how the working class once attempted to bolster a sense of stability and community, during the transitional years of the early nineteenth century, by effectively representing both a consolidation and celebration of their core values and beliefs. 


Kate Bates is Senior Lecturer in Criminal Justice at Liverpool John Moores University, UK. She has extensive experience of criminal justice, having served as both a police officer and a civilian caseworker investigating police complaints, and has also served as a panel member for Children’s Hearings Scotland.

BOOK: Benjamin FARGEAUD, La doctrine constitutionnelle sous la IVe République (Paris: Dalloz, 2020), 564 p. ISBN 978-2-2471-9603-6, € 70

(image source: Univ-droit)

En 1945, la période de la Libération devait également être un moment de rénovation pour le droit constitutionnel. Au moment même où la France se dotait d’une nouvelle Constitution, une nouvelle génération de constitutionnalistes accède au devant de la scène. À la génération des « disciples » succède celle que Marcel Prélot avait baptisée la « troisième génération de constitutionnalistes » et qui devait être la génération des « novateurs ». La rénovation du droit constitutionnel s’avéra toutefois un programme difficile à mettre en œuvre. La IVe République, malgré l’adoption d’une Constitution nouvelle, est rapidement revenue aux pratiques et usages de la IIIe République antérieure, décevant ainsi les espoirs de la doctrine constitutionnelle et les tentatives de façonner un droit constitutionnel propre au nouveau régime. Constatant l’échec du droit constitutionnel à encadrer la vie parlementaire, les constitutionnalistes ont alors délaissé le terrain de la technique constitutionnelle et se sont tournés vers la science politique afin de refonder leur discipline. Si cette voie politiste a permis à la « jeune école de droit public » d’aborder des champs de recherches nouveaux, tels que les partis politiques ou l’histoire des idées politiques, elle l’a toutefois détournée du terrain de la technique constitutionnelle sur lequel allait finalement se jouer la révision constitutionnelle de 1958, qui a consacré la Constitution de la Ve République.

(image source: Cairn)

In France, the end of the Italian wars and the tragic death of King Henry II opened the period of the Wars of Religion. The monarchy then plunged into a religious, political and military crisis in which the nobility played a decisive role. Yet, more than ever, the king must rely on the noblemen responsible for the defence and internal order of the kingdom. Thus between the general uprising of the Huguenots, under the direction of the Prince of Condé in April 1562, and the capture of Amiens in 1597, Charles IX, Henri III and then Henri IV multiplied the declarations, the summonses of the ban and the rear ban and the general calls to the nobility. Among the arguments presented to convince the nobles to abandon the revolt or join the royal army, is that of the lese-majesty. This article focuses on the place of this legal category, its evolution in monarchical discourse and on the reshaping it undergoes during religious unrest. The discourse to the nobility is not only revealed as the place where the domains covered by the lese-majesty are redefined, but also as a place for redefining the power and the role of the nobility.

(image source: CUP)

Book abstract:
In the period from 1500 to 1800 the problem of violence necessitated asking fundamental questions and formulating answers about the most basic forms of human organisation and interactions. Violence spoke to critical issues such as the problem of civility in society, the nature of political sovereignty and the power of the state, the legitimacy of conquest and subjugation, the possibilities of popular resistance, and the manifestations of ethnic and racial unrest. It also provided the raw material for profound meditations on humanity and for examining our relationship to the divine and natural worlds. The third volume of The Cambridge World History of Violence examines a world in which global empires were consolidated and expanded, and in which civilisations for the first time linked to each other by trans-oceanic contacts and a sophisticated world trade system.

BOOK: Mira L. SIEGELBERG, Statelessness. A Modern History (Cambridge (Mass.): Harvard University Press, 2020), 336 p. ISBN 9780674976313, 28,95 GBP

(image source: Worldcat)

Book abstract:
Two world wars left millions stranded in Europe. The collapse of empires and the rise of independent states in the twentieth century produced an unprecedented number of people without national belonging and with nowhere to go. Mira Siegelberg's innovative history weaves together ideas about law and politics, rights and citizenship, with the intimate plight of stateless persons, to explore how and why statelessness compelled a new understanding of the international order in the twentieth century and beyond. In the years following the First World War, the legal category of statelessness generated novel visions of cosmopolitan political and legal organization and challenged efforts to limit the boundaries of national membership and international authority. By linking the emergence of mass statelessness to a revolution in legal consciousness, Siegelberg shows how the rights regime created after the Second World War ultimately empowered the territorial state as the source of protection and rights, against alternative political configurations. Today, more than twelve million people are stateless and millions more belong to categories of recent invention, including refugees and asylum seekers. As Statelessness makes clear, understanding the ideological origins of the international agreements that define approaches to citizenship and non-citizenship can better equip us to confront the dilemmas of political structure and authority at a global scale.
