Heart versus head : judge-made law in nineteenth-century America by Peter Karsten( )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karsten unites his legal commentary with recent scholarship on the political culture of antebellum America in exploring the roots of a pro-plaintiff, humanitarian jurisprudence. In the process, he necessarily addresses the shortcomings of earlier, economic-oriented paradigms regarding judicial rulemaking in the nineteenth century - an alleged jurisprudence of the visible or invisible hand - demonstrating that both head and heart guided the making of American common law

The magic mirror : law in American history by Kermit L Hall( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicling American law from its English origins to the present, and offering for the first time comprehensive treatment of twentieth-century developments, this book sets American law and legal institutions in the broad context of social, economic, and political events, weaving together themes from the history of both constitutional and private law. The Magic Mirror treats law in society, and the legal implications of social change in areas such as criminal justice, the rights of women, blacks, the family, and children. It further examines regional differences in American legal culture, the creation of the administrative and security states, the development of American federalism, and the rise of the legal profession. Hall pays close attention to the evolution of substantive law categories--such as contracts, torts, negotiable instruments, real property, trusts and estates, and civil procedure--and addresses the intellectual evolution of American law, surveying movements such as legal realism and critical legal studies. Hall concludes that over its history American law has been remarkably fluid, adapting in form and substance to each successive generation without ever fully resolving the underlying social and economic conflicts that first provoke demands for legal change
