Law and the Rise of Capitalism

Madeleine R. Levy (Author) Michael E. Tigar (Author)
Synopsis Against a backdrop of seven hundred years of bourgeois struggle, eminent lawyer and educator, Michael E. Tigar, develops a Marxist theory of law and jurisprudence based upon the western experience. This well-researched and documented study traces the role of law and lawyers in the European bourgeoisie's conquest of power--the first such history in the English language--and in the process, complements the analyses of such major figures as R.H. Tawney and Max Weber. Using a wide range of primary sources, Tigar demonstrates that the legal theory of the insurgent bourgeoisie predated the protestant reformation and was a major ideological ingredient of the bourgeois revolution. Originally published in 1977, Law and the Rise of Capitalism has been translated into several languages to international acclaim. Tigar's new introduction and extended afterword discuss the struggle for human rights over the past two decades and shed light on the challenges facing today's social movements. Tigar draws on his own experiences as a fighter for democratic rights in the United States, Europe and South Africa, while adding new historical insights to human rights issues in the United States including the plight of political prisoners and the death penalty.
