BuchsteinOtto Kirchheimer - Gesammelte Schriften

The first volume of this edition of Otto Kirchheimer’s (1905–1965) collected works contains all his articles about the Weimar Republic and its collapse. It includes his classic pieces, like Weimar — und was dann? or Legalität und Legitimität in their correct original versions, as well as his critical analyses of the political and legal systems of the Weimar democracy. In addition, this volume contains a number of as yet unknown newspaper articles written by Kirchheimer about political and legal issues. This high quality volume opens with a detailed biographical introduction to Kirchheimer’s work and life until 1933 and ends with a comprehensive glossary of key terms and names. It will appeal to scholars and students of political science, law, German history, criminology and sociology.
