Wesley Newcomb Hohfeld, born in 1879, died prematurely in 1918. He left only a few law journal articles as his published work. His 'Fundamental Legal Conceptions', originally published as two articles in the 'Yale Law Journal' for 1913 and 1917 and left incompletely revised at his death is, however, one of the principal foundations of analytic jurisprudence. The analysis of rights that Hohfeld offers is still regularly cited and relied upon by both lawyers and philosophers, and it is treated as a source of insight into the nature of moral rights as well as the legal rights that were Hohfeld’s own focus of concern. Although some of his analytical distinctions were anticipated by earlier jurists, their insights were fragmentary and imperfect by comparison. Hohfeld’s systematic and exhaustive (yet concise) treatment is generally regarded as unsurpassed. This is not to say that he has not been criticized, but his book forms the essential starting point for any discussion of the nature and structure of rights. 'Fundamental Legal Conceptions' has long been difficult to obtain. This new edition makes this classic of analytic jurisprudence available with a comprehensive introduction by Dr. N.E. Simmonds of Corpus Christi, University of Cambridge, UK.

This book examines legal ideology in America from the height of the Gilded Age through the time of the New Deal, when the Supreme Court began to discard orthodox thought in favour of more modernist approaches to law. Wiecek places this era of legal thought in its historical context, integrating social, economic, and intellectual analyses.

English summary: One of the consequences that developed in a paradigm based on the theory of a social contract is that distributive justice (iustitia distributiva) has almost no relevance in contract law. Stefan Arnold engages this paradigm and shows that distributive justice permeates contract law and shapes the subsequent communal justice (iustitia commutativa). Arnold therefore presents a theory of distributive justice as a legal perspective which looks beyond exchange relationships and considers the regulative capacity of contract law. In this way, contract is able to contribute to the public good in such areas as behavioral control, protection of the weak or the realization of the public interest. When distributive justice is joined by principles of contract law, the results are positive for autonomy and self-reliance. This work demonstrated the value of distributive justice for social laws such as laws dealing with tenancy, consumer protection and discrimination. German description: Einem vertragstheoretischen Paradigma zufolge ist die iustitia distributiva im Vertragsrecht nahezu ohne Bedeutung. Stefan Arnold greift dieses Paradigma an und zeigt, dass die iustitia distributiva das Vertragsrecht ebenso durchdringt und pragt wie die iustitia commutativa . Dazu entwickelt er eine Theorie der iustitia distributiva als Gerechtigkeitsperspektive, die uber das Austauschverhaltnis hinausblickt und die regulative Kapazitat des Vertragsrechts berucksichtigt. So kann das Vertragsrecht etwa zur Verhaltenssteuerung, zum Schwacherenschutz oder zur Verwirklichung von Allgemeinwohlbelangen beitragen. Die iustitia distributiva wird vom Postulat der Vertragsfreiheit flankiert, das Autonomie und Eigenverantwortung einfordert. Die Arbeit illustriert die Bedeutung der iustitia distributiva unter anderem anhand des sozialen Mietrechts, des Verbrauchervertragsrechts und des Diskriminierungrechts.

A classic work in the anthropology of law, this book offered one of the first ambitiously conceived analyses of the fundamental rights and duties that are treated as law among nonliterate peoples (labeled "primitive" at the time of the original publication). The heart of the book is a description and analysis of the law of five societies: the Eskimo; the Ifugao of northern Luzon in the Philippines; the Comanche, Kiowa, and Cheyenne tribes of the western plains of the United States; the Trobriand Islanders of the southwest Pacific; and the Ashanti of western Africa. Hoebel's lucid analysis reveals the variety and complexity of these societies' political and legal institutions. It emphasizes their use of due process in adjudication and enforcement and highlights the importance of general explicit standards of conduct in these societies. In offering these detailed case studies of societies studied by other anthropologists, and in outlining an influential approach to the subject, it remains an illuminating book for both scholars and students.

English summary: Without the concept of agency, an economy based on the division of labor would not be possible. The Principles of European Contract Law, the Unidroit Principles of International Commercial Contracts and the Draft Common Frame of Reference have each made separate proposals for harmonizing the regulations pertaining to agency. Dominik Moser studies these regulatory models, exploring the extent to which the existence of an agency relationship must be revealed to the other party and the legal consequences of that agency. The author bases his study on the law in Germany, representing the continental European legal tradition, and the law in England, as a representative of the common law. He then compares the proposals for regulations, evaluating them according to their potential to solve practical legal problems while still balancing the interests of all the parties concerned. German description: Ohne die Stellvertretung ware eine arbeitsteilig organisierte Wirtschaft nicht moglich. In jungster Zeit erschienen mit den Principles of European Contract Law, den Unidroit Principles of International Commercial Contracts und dem Draft Common Frame of Reference drei unterschiedliche Vorschlage fur vereinheitlichte Stellvertretungsregelungen. Dominik Moser untersucht diese Modellregelungen hinsichtlich der Fragen, inwieweit das Vorliegen einer Stellvertretung der anderen Partei offenbart werden muss, und welche Rechtsfolgen sich hieraus ergeben. Dabei nimmt der Autor die Regelungen des deutschen und des englischen Rechts als Vertreter der kontinental-europaischen Rechtstradition einerseits und des Common Law andererseits zum Ausgangspunkt. Er vergleicht die Regelungsvorschlage und bewertet sie danach, ob sie interessengerechte Losungen fur die in der Rechtspraxis auftretenden Probleme bieten.

Intellectual property is a vital part of the global economy, accounting for about half of the GDP in countries like the United States. Innovation, competition, economic growth and jobs can all be helped or hurt by different approaches to this key asset class, where seemingly slight changes in the rules of the game can have remarkable impact. This book brings together diverse perspectives from the fields of law, economics, business and political science to explore the ways varying approaches to intellectual property can positively and negatively impact our economy and society. Employing approaches that are both theoretically rigorous and grounded in the real world, Perspectives on Commercializing Innovation is well suited for practising lawyers, managers, lawmakers and analysts, as well as academics conducting research or teaching in a range of courses in law schools, business schools and economics departments, at either the undergraduate or graduate level.
