Lawyers and Vampires: Cultural Histories of Legal Professions (Paperback)

£39.99
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

First published in hardback in April 2003, this is the first book that directly addresses the cultural history of the legal profession. An international team of scholars canvasses wide-ranging issues concerning the culture of the legal profession and the wider cultural significance of lawyers, including consideration of the relation to cultural processes of state formation and colonisation. The essays describe and analyse significant aspects of the cultural history of the legal profession in England, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway and Finland. The book seeks to understand the complex ways in which lawyers were imaginatively and institutionally constructed, and their larger cultural significance. It illustrates both the diversity and the potential of a cultural approach to lawyers in history. 'Wesley Pue and David Sugarman have produced a fascinating volume of essays written from various perspectives under the rubric of cultural histories. I...want to present a sense of the richness of the essays in this volume.

Lawyers and Vampires is a very provocative volume, and it will appeal to many political scientists who are using multiple methods and multidisciplinary approaches in their own work.' Laura J. Hatcher, The Law and Politics Book Review, November 2003
