Descrizione

In this history of law in Texas from 1718 to the present, Ariens (law, St. Mary's U. of San Antonio) explores the relationship between law and culture in the Lone Star state. Key themes include the influence of Texas exceptionalism on the law, the concept of Americans as "hustlers" as developed by historian Walter McDougall in his history of the United States and as it applies to the development of Texas law, and the roles of myth and memory in approaches to the law. He begins with a chronological narrative that traces developments to 1920 and then presents thematic chapters on the railroad and other corporations; family law and cultural change; the legal profession, legal education, and the courts; criminal law and civil rights; and civil procedure, civil remedies, and civil law.
