Gifts: A Study in Comparative Law is the first broad-based study of the law governing the giving and revocation of gifts ever attempted. Gift-giving is everywhere governed by social and customary norms before it encounters the law and the giving of gifts takes place largely outside of the marketplace. As a result of these two characteristics, the law of gifts provides an optimal lens through which to examine how different legal systems engage with social practice. The law of gifts is well-developed both in the civil and the common laws. Richard Hyland's study provides an excellent view of the ways in which different civil and common law jurisdictions confront common issues. The legal systems discussed include principally, in the common law, those of Great Britain, the United States, and India, and, in the civil law, the private law systems of Belgium and France, Germany, Italy, and Spain. Professor Hyland also serves a critique of the dominant method in the field, which is a form of functionalism based on what is called the praesumptio similitudinis, namely the axiom that, once legal doctrine is stripped away, developed legal systems tend to reach similar practical results. His study demonstrates, to the contrary, that legal systems actually differ, not only in their approach and conceptual structure, but just as much in the results.

Grundthese des Buches ist, dass ein Paradigmenwechsel stattgefunden hat, der den Menschen zum primaren Volkerrechtssubjekt macht. Diese These wird vor dem Hintergrund der Ideengeschichte und Dogmatik der Volkerrechtspersonlichkeit des Menschen entfaltet und auf die Rechtspraxis in zahlreichen Teilrechtsgebieten, angefangen vom Recht der internationalen Verantwortung uber das Recht des bewaffneten Konflikts, das Recht der Katastrophenhilfe, das internationale Strafrecht, das internationale Umweltrecht, das Konsularrecht und das Recht des diplomatischen Schutzes, das internationale Arbeitsrecht, das Fluchtlingsrecht bis hin zum internationalen Investitionsschutzrecht gestutzt. Der neue Volkerrechtsstatus des Menschen wird mit dem Begriff des subjektiven internationalen Rechts auf den Punkt gebracht.

Fiduciary law is a critically important body of law. Fiduciary duties ensure the integrity of a remarkable variety of relationships, institutions, and organizations. They apply to relationships of great personal significance, including in some jurisdictions the relationship between parents and children. They structure a wide variety of commercial relationships, and they are essential to the regulation of relationships between professional service providers and their clients, including relationships between lawyer and client, doctor and patient, and investment manager and client. Fiduciary duties, perhaps uniquely in private law, challenge traditional ways of marking the boundaries between private and public law, inasmuch as they figure prominently in public governance. Indeed, there is even a storied tradition of thinking of the authority of the state in fiduciary terms. Notwithstanding its importance, fiduciary law has been woefully under-analysed by legal theorists. Filling this gap with a series of chapters by leading theorists, this book includes chapters on: the nature of fiduciary relationships, the connection between fiduciary duties and morality, the content and significance of fiduciary loyalty, the economic significance of fiduciary law, the application of fiduciary principles to public law and international law, the import of fiduciary relationships to theories of authority, and various other fundamental topics in the field. In many cases, new and important questions are raised by the book's chapters. Indeed, this book not only offers a much-needed theoretical assessment of fiduciary topics, it defines the field going forward, setting an agenda for future philosophical study of fiduciary law.

Die Auseinandersetzungen im Zuge der Proteste gegen den Besuch des Schahs von Persien im Fruhjahr 1967 eskalierten in der Erschiessung des Studenten Benno Ohnesorg. Dieses Ereignis fuhrte u. a. zu einer Radikalisierung eines Teils der Studentenbewegung und drei Jahre spater schliesslich zur Grundung der -Rote Armee Fraktion (RAF)-. Die in der Folgezeit von der Gruppe begangenen terroristischen Gewalttaten erreichten ihren Hohepunkt in der sogenannten -Offensive A77- mit der Ermordung des Generalbundesanwalts Siegfried Buback, des Dresdner Bank-Chefs Jurgen Ponto und des Arbeitgeberprasidenten Hanns-Martin Schleyer. Als -Deutscher Herbst- gerieten die Ereignisse zur grossten innenpolitischen und juristischen Herausforderung der alten Bundesrepublik. Das Forum Justizgeschichte e.V. hat sich auf einer Tagung im Jahre 2006 intensiv mit der Entstehung und der Geschichte der RAF beschaftigt. Der gleichnamige Band enthalt Beitrage zum gesellschaftlichen Umfeld der RAF und zu den Reaktionen des Gesetzgebers sowie der Justiz aus der Sicht der Wissenschaft, von Zeitzeugen und Verteidigern einiger Gruppenmitglieder."
