Summary
"This book links law, empires, and capital through a Political Marxist history of early modern extraterritoriality framed by the new concept of jurisdictional accumulation. Based on secondary and primary material, the concept reveals new aspects of the Spanish, French, English/British and Dutch early modern empires through their colonial and diplomatic practices and social property relations. Going beyond the classic focus on embassy chapels in Northern Europe shows the inadequacy of conventional narratives of extraterritoriality for defining the modern international legal order. The early modern was jurisdictional, but not only because of the plurality and overlapping of jurisdictional regimes. The early modern was jurisdictional because of the use of jurisdictional rights, titles, and functions as institutions and subjectivities, used as means of imperial ownership and rule over indigenous groups and against competing empires. A variety of actors used jurisdictional devices and arguments that shaped imperial expansion in ways defined here as extensions, transplants and transports of authority. Jurisdictional accumulation contrasts to mercantilism and capitalism, and constitutes a significant mode of expansion that brings ambassadors, consuls, merchants, and lawyers out of the shadows of empire and onto the main stage of the construction of modern international relations and international law"--
