Seligman and Frederick Hicks. Using examples from late-nineteenth century American and European legislation and codes, Loeb examines how industrial capitalism, urbanization and new ideas about the status of women and children during the late nineteenth century affected the field of matrimonial property relations, one of the oldest and most conservative areas of the law. His general observations are followed by detailed sections on changes in the areas of marriage and legal capacity, matrimonial property systems and the succession of married parties.
