Guilt about the past by Bernhard Schlink( Book )
17 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 434 libraries worldwide
"Author Bernhard Schlink explores the long shadow of past guilt as both an individual experience and a collective and global one. By using the example of the postwar German experience, Schlink addresses both timely and universal themes: how past events can affect a nation's future; how the lessons of history can be used to motivate individual moral behaviour and the role of the law in this process; and how the theme of guilt influences his own fiction. Based on the Weidenfeld Lectures he delivered at Oxford University, this thought-provoking book illuminates the moral complexity that binds guilt and responsibility, and what makes for a true state of reconciliation."--Jacket

Weimar : a jurisprudence of crisis ( Book )
21 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 304 libraries worldwide
This selection of the major works of constitutional theory during the Weimar period reflects the reactions of legal scholars to a state in permanent crisis, a society in which all bets were off. Yet the Weimar Republic's brief experiment in constitutionalism laid the groundwork for the postwar Federal Republic, and today its lessons can be of use to states throughout the world. Weimar legal theory is a key to understanding the experience of nations turning from traditional, religious, or command-and-control forms of legitimation to the rule of law. Only two of these authors, Hans Kelsen and Carl Schmitt, have been published to any extent in English, but they and the others whose writings are translated here played key roles in the political and constitutional struggles of the Weimar Republic. Critical introductions to all the theorists and commentaries on their works have been provided by experts from Austria, Canada, Germany, and the United States. In their general introduction, the editors place the Weimar debate in the context of the history and politics of the Weimar Republic and the struggle for constitutionalism in Germany. This critical scrutiny of the Weimar jurisprudence of crisis offers an invaluable overview of the perils and promise of constitutional development in states that lack an entrenched tradition of constitutionalism
