Integrating the history of Paris with the history of consumption, the press, publicity, advertising and spectacle, this book traces the evolution of the urban core districts of consumption and explores elements of consumer culture such as the print media, publishing, retail techniques, tourism, city marketing, fashion, illustrated posters and Montmartre culture in the nineteenth century. Hahn emphasizes the tension between art and industry and between culture and commerce, a dynamic that significantly marked urban commercial modernity that spread new imaginary about consumption. She argues that Parisian consumer culture arose earlier than generally thought, and explores the intense commercialization Paris underwent.

Volume 9: A History of the Philosophy of Law in the Civil Law World, 1600 1900
edited by Damiano Canale, Paolo Grossi and Hasso Hofmann Provides an in-depth study of the different ways of understanding law which were developed from the mid-17th century to the end of the 19th century by jurists and legal philosophers working in the civil-law tradition. In particular, the book collects chapters offering a systematic history of the basic legal concepts and of the disciplines that systematized them in a set form in the legal thought of Continental Europe. The first two chapters discuss the way the scientific method elaborated and firmed up by modern natural-law theory was received into European legal science in the period leading to the French Revolution, with Chapter 1 focusing on the Germanic area, and Chapter 2 instead on the French area. Chapter 3 is devoted to the European legal Enlightenment, and to the reverberations this movement had on the culture as well as on the politics of law. Chapter 4 discusses the codification of law, describing in what ways and to what degree codification shaped the structure of Europe s legal systems and the organization of its society through law. Chapter 5 traces out the development of German legal science through the crisis of modern natural-law theory and the birth of the great European codes, considering in particular the birth of the Historical School of law and its later development with Puchta. Chapter 6 reconstructs the birth and evolution of the modern science of administration, which played a central role in helping the institutions of the modern state become woven into the social and economic fabric. Chapter 7 is dedicated to the history of European constitutionalism. Chapter 8 discusses the crisis of conceptual jurisprudence, the voluntarist and vitalistic conceptions this crisis led to, and the birth of neo-idealist movements in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
"The volume editors and contributors are international leading specialists from Italy, France, Spain, and Germany.
Volume 10: The Philosophers Philosophy of Law from the Seventeenth Century to Our Days
by Patrick RileyOffers a comprehensive and original treatment of the philosophers philosophy of law from Grotius to the "left Kantianism" of Rawls and Habermas. The volume also discusses some "philosophers of law" who are not philosophers in a broader sense, but who cannot be omitted because certain far greater "real" philosophers would then become unintelligible. The philosophy of law is viewed in this work as a final outgrowth of a more general moral philosophy, and that moral philosophy in turn as an outgrowth of "first philosophy" (metaphysics, epistemology, theology). Special prominence is given to Leibniz, Malebranche, and Kantianism. Leibniz combines philosophical and jurisprudential greatness in a way achieved by no other. Since Leibniz has never been rendered his jurisprudential "due" in English, the present volume offers
One of the most influential Marxist theorists of the twentieth century, Henri Lefebvre first published Marxist Thought and the City in French in 1972, marking a pivotal point in his evolution as a thinker and an important precursor to his groundbreaking work of urban sociology, The Production of Space. Marxist Thought and the City—inwhich he reviews the work of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels for commentary and analysis on the life and growth of the city—now appears in English for the first time.
Rooted in orthodox Marxism’s analyses of capitalism and the capitalist mode of production, with extensive quotations from the works of Marx and Engels, this book describes the city’s transition from life under feudalism to modern industrial capitalism. In doing so it highlights the various forces that sought to maintain power in the struggles between the medieval aristocracy and the urban guilds, amid the growth of banking and capital.
Providing vital background and supplementary material to Lefebvre’s other books, including The Urban Revolution and Right to the City, Marxist Thought and the City is indispensable for students and scholars of urbanism, Marxism, social geography, early modern history, and the history of economic thought.
