Professor Ron Harris

The Kalman Lubowsky Professor of
Law and History, Tel Aviv University

Ron Harris is today’s leading international scholar of the history of the
business corporation. His work in legal and economic history has
illuminated the formation of joint stock enterprises during industrialization
in 18th century England, and the development of business enterprise in
Britain, Germany, and Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries. More
recently he has portrayed the wider comparative history of trade and
colonialism as a key component in the rise of global capitalism. His most
recent book is ‘Going the Distance: Eurasian Trade and the Rise of the
Business Corporation, 1400-1700’ (Princeton UP, 2000). Harris will lecture
on his current research addressing the expansion of company law from
Britain to its global empire in the century before the Great War.
