Max Weber on Law and the Rise of Capitalism, 1972 Wisconsin Law Review 720 (1972)
The common tendency to think of "law and development" as the study of problems unique to the 20th century often results in our neglect of the groundwork already established by scholars of an earlier age facing similar problems. Professor Trubek's concise distillation of Max Weber's contribution to law and development theory demonstrates the continued viability of Weber's analysis for contemporary use.
