Curtis J. Milhaupt, Katharina Pistor, Law and capitalism: what corporate crises reveal about legal systems and economic development around the world, University of Chicago Press, 2008.              

K487.E3M55 2008

 

This text sets forth a new analytic framework for understanding the problems inherent in legal regulation of business practices in capitalist economies. The authors question the view that law is an instrumental function for financial market development and economic growth. They argue that law and markets evolve together in a “rolling relationship,” and legal systems, including those of the most successful economies, therefore differ significantly in their organizational characteristics.

Prominent activists and scholars examine the emergence and significance of the contemporary immigrant rights movement. The book places the contemporary immigrant rights movement in historical and comparative contexts by looking at the ways immigrants and their allies have staked claims to rights in the past, and by examining movements based in different communities around the United States.
