Michael Stolleis
Translated by Thomas Dunlap

  • The first complete history of German public law in this period
  • Follows the destruction of the rule of law during the Nazi period and discusses the complicity of the law professors in respect of the Holocaust
  • Describes German public law's most creative intellectual period, covering authors such as Hans Kelsen, Carl Schmitt, Hermann Heller, and Rudolf Smend
  • The original German edition of this book won (as one of a series of 3 volumes) the International Balzan Prize. The author also won the Leibniz Prize of the German Foundation of Sciences for one of the other two volumes in the set. He has thus received the two most important prizes for work in the Humanities in Germany.
