Présentation de l'éditeur

Over the course of his career at Harvard, Morton Horwitz changed the questions legal historians ask. "The Transformation of American Law, 1780-1860" (1977) disclosed the many ways that judge-made law favored commercial and property interests and remade law to promote economic growth. "The Transformation of American Law, 1870-1960" (1992) continued that project, with a focus on ideas that reshaped law as we struggled for objective and neutral legal responses to our country's crises. In more recent years he has written extensively on the legal realists and the Warren Court. Following an earlier festschrift volume by his former students, this volume includes essays by Horwitz' colleagues at Harvard and those from across the academy, as well as his students. These essays assess specific themes in Horwitz' work, from the antebellum era to the Warren Court, from jurisprudence to the influence of economics on judicial doctrine. The essays are, like Horwitz, provocative and original as they continue his transformation of American legal history.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 More Essays in Honor of Morton Horwitz 7 mars 2011
Par Ronald H. Clark - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is the second volume of essays prepared by the editors to honor the work of Harvard Professor Morton Horwitz. Horowitz has had a dynamic impact on the field of American legal history, and its practitioners, as a result of his incredibly influential "Transformation of American Law" volumes (the first covering 1780-1860; the second 1870-1960). While his main thesis (that judges "adjusted" the common law to promote the economic growth of an industrializing America) was somewhat revolutionary when the books were first published in 1979 and 1994), Horwitz is now seen as a gifted and insightful trailblazer.

While the essays in the first volume were mainly authored by direct students of Horwitz, this volume has contributions from many esteemed legal historians in their own right and others who have been impacted by Horowitz in one way or another. Like the initial collection, this volume is of uniformly high quality and is evidence of the pervasive impact Horwitz has had on the field's many dimensions. After an initial helpful forward by William Fisher, the essays are organized into six sections.

The first is "Legal History and Morton Horwitz," which I found particularly interesting. Some of the essays focus on Horwitz's own work and techniques; others address some important substantive topics. Particularly well done are essays by William E. Forbath, G. Edward White (on the origin and evolution of the Charles Warren professorship and center at HLS), Robert W. Gordon, and James R. Hackney, Jr.

The next section is concerned with "Colonial and 19th Century American Law." These essays cover a broader range of interests though, including law on the border, credit-based capitalism, and "materialist jurisprudence." Particularly outstanding here are essays by Robert J. Steinfeld on the anti-majoritarian rationale for judicial review, and Afred S. Konefsky on the Boston social milieu surrounding the Charles River Bridge decision.

Section Three deals with 20th Century American law, including fine contributions by Edward A. Purcell Jr. on the history of the federal courts, and Katherine V.W. Stone's discussion of John R. Commons and the origins of legal realism. Part IV is on the Warren Court (Horwitz is writing the Oliver Wendell Holmes devise volume on this topic), with a particularly insightful essay by Mark Tushnet. Part V focuses on the past and future of legal history, and includes a most interesting essay by David Sugarman on Horwitz's influence in England, Canada and Australia.

The vital concluding section has two personal appreciations of Horwitz, one by his present wife, that afford a more personal insight into Horwitz the man. In fact, many of the contributors in their individual essays remark upon the personal qualities that have made Horwitz such a remarkable teacher and historian. All told, the volume's 32 essays run some 570 lively pages that must be considered absolutely essential reading for anyone interested in American legal history.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Worthy Festschrift for Morton J. Horwitz 24 juin 2009
Par Ronald H. Clark - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is an excellent collection of articles in honor of Professor Horwitz of Harvard Law School, written by some of his students, colleagues and friends. A second edited volume is to come. Horwitz had a dynamic impact on the field of American legal history when he published his two "Transformation of American Law" volumes, the first covering 1780-1860 (published in 1979), and the second focusing on 1870-1960 (published in 1994). These studies are still of immense value to any serious student of this field. Many of Horwitz's "revolutionary" ideas have now become accepted orthodoxy.

Most of the studies deal with American legal history in one way or another. They break down as follows chronologically: The first three essays deal with the early national period. These topics include Kent and Story; colonial constitutional law antecedents; and the idea of overlapping sovereignty. The next group of essays (4-6) focus on the antebellum period and are concerned with topics such as firm law practices, the Fugitive Slave Act, and antebellum property law concepts. Next, two essays (7 & 8) discuss developments in the late 19th century relating to limited liability and a fascinating discussion of James Coolidge Carter and his mugwump perspective by Lewis A. Grossman. Four essays ( 9-12) deal with 20th century topics, including the "clear and present danger" test, Hugo Black's conservative turn on civil rights, free riders, and an excellent essay on the development of legal pluralism by Dalia Tsuk Mitchell, author of an outstanding study of Felix Cohen (also reviewed on Amazon). Several studies deal with Horwitz and his impact on the authors' own work (13, 14 & 18). There also are two essays on intellectual property issues. Amongst the most valuable essays is one (#15) by Charles Donahue, Jr., of HLS, on the current status of legal history as a discipline.

The essays are uniformly of superior quality, supported by extensive footnotes attached to each study. An excellent foreword by Elena Kagan, at the time Dean of HLS and now Solicitor General, and a preface by the editors set the stage for the collection. A very valuable resource of anyone seriously interested in the field of legal history.
