en Limba Engleză Paperback – 10 Oct 2012
First published in 1989, The Constitutional Jurisprudence of the Federal Republic of Germany has become an invaluable resource for scholars and practitioners of comparative, international, and constitutional law, as well as of German and European politics. The third edition of this renowned English-language reference has now been fully updated and significantly expanded to incorporate both previously omitted topics and recent decisions of the German Federal Constitutional Court. Compared to previous editions of The Constitutional Jurisprudence of the Federal Republic of Germany, this third edition more closely tracks Germany’s Basic Law and, therefore, the systematic approach reflected in the most respected German constitutional law commentaries. Entirely new chapters address the relationship between German law and European and international law; social and economic rights, including the property and occupational rights cases that have emerged from Reunification; jurisprudence related to issues of equality, particularly gender equality; and the tension between Germany’s counterterrorism efforts and its constitutional guarantees of liberty.

Recenzii

“In the endeavour to gain knowledge from the constitutional problems confronted and resolutions reached by our judicial counterparts abroad, this work by Donald P. Kommers and Russell A. Miller is a rich resource. Offering far more than excellent English-language translations of the decisions of a renowned tribunal, Professors Kommers and Miller supply incisive analyses and commentary. Brought right up to the moment, the third edition of The Constitutional Jurisprudence of the Federal Republic of Germany is engaging, enlightening, and indispensable for those seeking to learn from the text and context of German constitutional jurisprudence.” United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, from the New Foreword to the Third Edition

“The constitutional law of Germany—and the judgments of the German Federal Constitutional Court—are central for anyone interested in comparative constitutional law. This book is an excellent introduction to German constitutional thinking. It makes one better understand one’s own constitution and its problems. I have relied heavily on the previous editions. This latest one is essential.” - Former President Aharon Barak, Supreme Court of Israel

“Since 1989, The Constitutional Jurisprudence of the Federal Republic of Germany, initially authored by Donald Kommers and now co-authored with Russell Miller, has provided a welcome window to the rich jurisprudence on the German Basic Law. For those working in the field of comparative constitutional and human rights law (and especially those who do not have a grasp of German), the third edition of this book remains, like its two predecessors, an essential resource. It is fitting that the publication of the third edition should mark the 60th anniversary of the Federal Constitutional Court, a Court whose careful and serious engagement with the task of constitutional adjudication is admired all over the world.” - Former Justice Kate O'Regan, South African Constitutional Court

“Donald Kommers’ and Russell Miller's book on German constitutional law is a necessary resource for scholars, lawyers and judges in the age of European and global constitutionalism. A model to be imitated, in order to develop a veritable pluralistic constitutionalism.” - Justice Marta Cartabia, Italian Constitutional Court

“This book provides comprehensive information of the case law of one of the most powerful constitutional jurisdictions of the modern world. Its unique value is due to a successful combination of carefully selected excerpts from the decisions of the Bundesverfassungsgericht and the commentary of the authors. Like two previous editions (1989 and 1997), it will become an indispensable tool for all interested in German constitutional law and practice. The present edition not only updates the ‘classic’ case-law on federalism and individual rights, but also addresses newly emerging constitutional issues, including Germany’s participation in the European Union and the – internal and external – consequences of the ‘war on terror’.” - Judge Lech Garlicki, European Court of Human Rights, Former Justice, Polish Constitutional Court
