    This book presents a comprehensive theory of legal interpretation, by a leading judge and legal theorist.

  • Verweisungen in deutschen Alfred G. Debus

    Duncker & Humblot 2008; US$ 62.98

    Hauptbeschreibung Verweisungen in deutschen Rechtsnormen werden in der Literatur häufig als problematisch und in einigen Fällen als verfassungsrechtlich unzulässig bewertet. "Verweisungsfreundlicher" ist die dazu bislang aber nur fragmentarisch vorliegende Kasuistik des Bundesverfassungsgerichts. Vor diesem Hintergrund hinterfragt Alfred G. Debus... more...

  • The Nature of Legislative Intentby Richard Ekins

    Oxford University Press 2012; US$ 69.99

    Are legislatures able to form and act on intentions? The question matters because the interpretation of statutes is often thought to centre on the intention of the legislature and because the way in which the legislature acts is relevant to the authority it does or should enjoy. Many scholars argue that legislative intent is a fiction: the legislative... more...

  • Law and Objectivityby Kent Greenawalt

    Oxford University Press, USA 1995; US$ 54.99

    In modern times the idea of the objectivity of law has been undermined by skepticism about legal institutions, disbelief in ideals of unbiased evaluation, and a conviction that language is indeterminate. Greenawalt here considers the validity of such skepticism, examining such questions as: whether the law as it exists provides determinate answers... more...

  • Why the Law Is So Perverseby Leo Katz

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 22.50

    Conundrums, puzzles, and perversities: these are Leo Katz?s stock-in-trade, and in Why the Law Is So Perverse , he focuses on four fundamental features of our legal system, all of which seem to not make sense on some level and to demand explanation. First, legal decisions are essentially made in an either/or fashion?guilty or not guilty, liable... more...
