Einleitung in die rechtswissenschaftliche Problematik
Author: Hans Kelsen,Stanley L. Paulson,Robert Walter
Publisher: Scientia Verlag Und Antiquariat
Kelsen's 'Pure theory of law' was first presented in his fundamental work Hauptprobleme des Staatsrechtlehre (1911) and continued in both editions of Reine Rechtslehre (1934, 1958). Historically, it has a certain relation to John Austin's 'analytical jurisprudence', although Kelsen became acquainted with Austin's work for the first time in 1940. The 'pure theory of law' is a formal-logical analysis of law, considered as a system of norms, based philosophically on the strict distinction between 'is' and 'ought'. It is a normative and positive doctrine, opposed both to positivism, showing the limitations of the positivistic approach, the whole legal order. His positivism is a formal analysis of the legal norm, of its elements and of the architecture of the legal order. Kelsen's concentration on the form of law recognizes the legitimacy of sociological investigations and the study of values in reference both to the contents and the making of law. Equally, his philosophical relativism of values is entirely compatible with his strong stand for democracy and the ideals of western culture. German text.

"Introduction to Public Law" is a historical and comparative introduction to public law. The book traces back the origins of the "res publica" to Roman law and analyzes the course of its development, first during the monarchical age in continental Europe and England, and then during the republican age that began at the end of the eighteenth century with the democratic revolutions in the United States and France. For each period and country, the book analyzes the major concepts of public law and their transformations: sovereignty, the state, the statute, the separation of powers, the public interest, and administrative justice.
Public Law offers a fresh and distinctive approach to the subject. Covering in detail all the topics fundamental to undergraduate courses, this essential text presents a sophisticated and coherent analysis of the doctrines and institutions of public law. Throughout, this analysis is integrated with explanation of the wider socio-political context in which the constitution operates. Three key themes run throughout the book and help you to approach the subject in a structured and accessible way that aids deeper understanding of the subject. The key themes are: - The significance of executive power and the challenge of ensuring that those who exercise such power are held to account; - The shift from a political towards a legal constitution and the implications of this change; and - The increasingly 'multi-layered' character of the UK constitution Engaging, clear, and focused fully on what you need, Public Law is the perfect guide to this challenging and fascinating subject.
