Editorial Reviews

Review

"A really good historian as well as a really good lawyer, Kessler offers an accomplished and imaginative interpretation of the origins of liberal legal-economic market culture in eighteenth-century Paris."—Robert W. Gordon, Yale University
(Robert W. Gordon)

A Revolution in Commerce is an erudite, original, and compelling treatment of one of the great problems of modern historiography: the relationship between capitalism and merchant practices, on the one hand, and late eighteenth-century political revolution, on the other.”—John Fabian Witt, Columbia University
 
 
 
(John Fabian Witt)

". . . the first book-length study of the Juridiction Consulaire de Paris in nearly a century, and by far the best. . . . It will appeal to . . . anyone who hopes to understand the commercial bourgeoisie of old regime France."—Thomas M. Luckett, Project Muse
(Thomas M. Luckett Project Muse)

"Clear and persuasive. . . . offers access to the way merchants, and [their] communities . . . rethought the moral dimension of their own social practice. . . . makes a significant contribution to scholarship on the cultural mediations of commercial society."—John Shovlin, Law and History Review
(John Shovlin Law and History Review)
