Criminal Procedures: Cases, Statutes, and Executive Materials is noted for its comprehensive coverage and excellent selection and editing of cases and materials. The book is known for its special focus on a rich selection of materials from multiple institutions, including primary materials from U.S. Supreme Court cases, state high court cases, state and federal statutes, rules of procedure, and police and prosecutorial policies, along with materials from social science studies. The new edition retains the casebook’s engaging writing style and division of materials into “teachable chunks.” Updated cases are chosen for their contemporary accuracy and feel, to complement essential cases of historical value. Taken together, the principal materials highlight procedural variety, focus on real process topics, provide the political context, and consider the impact of procedures on the various parties involved. The scholarly expertise and experience of the authors is especially reflected in the Criminal Procedure II materials, which includes coverage of prosecutorial charging, plea bargaining, and sentencing. Their frequent use of Problems gives instructors options for applying concepts and doctrines in realistic practice settings.

The Right to Wage War (jus ad bellum)

With De iure belli ac pacis libri tres (1625), the Dutch humanist and natural law philosopher Hugo Grotius (1583-1645) quickly became the greatest authority on international law (jus gentium) and on just war (bellum justum) in Europe for the next hundred years or so. By examining the theories of three largely unknown German scholars, Konrad Friedlieb, Valentin Alberti and Johann Wolfgang Textor, Andreas Harald Aure discusses dominant visions of international law and the right to go to war (jus ad bellum) in the Protestant parts of the Holy Roman Empire, two generations after Grotius wrote his magnum opus. The authors struggled with questions such as: - What may serve as right justification (cause) for war? - Can an offensive war be just? - Can a war be just on both sides? - Has a belligerent the right to pass through third-party territory? - Is there a right to wage war on behalf of people in foreign countries? Two chapters discuss the conceptual development of jus gentium (the law of nations). As an adherent of Thomas Hobbes' systematic approach to law, Samuel Pufendorf (1632-1694) realigned jus gentium as natural law (jus naturale). The main topic of this book is a detailed account of the just conditions for war (jus ad bellum) among leading German scholars in the 17th Century, based on in-depth research of primary sources. --------------------------------------------- Die Veröffentlichung von De iure belli ac pacis libri tres (1625) machte den holländischen Humanisten und Naturrechtsphilosophen Hugo Grotius (1583-1645) innerhalb kurzer Zeit zur führenden Autorität in Europa auf dem Gebiet des Völkerrechts (jus gentium) und des gerechten Krieges (bellum justum), woran sich in den folgenden hundert Jahren nichts ändern sollte.

Die deutsche Privatrechtstheorie befindet sich seit einiger Zeit in einer methodischen Aufbruchsdiskussion. Ungeachtet aller Unterschiede im Einzelnen, geht es ihr vorrangig darum, vorhandene Rechtsbestande kritisch zu reflektieren. Sie macht dabei den Richtigkeitsanspruch privatrechtlicher oder privatrechtsdogmatischer Aussagen als solcher zum Gegenstand der Diskussion. Die Privatrechtstheorie ist damit ein Bereich, in dem Juristen Reflexionsdistanz gegenuber dem positiven Recht gewinnen. Damit stosst der Band eine konzentrierte Diskussion an, die Perspektiven der Privatrechtstheorie aufeinander bezieht, miteinander vergleicht und ihre jeweilige Leistungsfahigkeit kritisch untersucht. Das Buch ist nicht an einer Sachfrage orientiert. Vielmehr analysieren die darin enthaltenen Beitrage drei jungere Arbeiten, die jeweils reprasentativ fur einen bestimmten Zugang zur Rechtstheorie stehen.

Andrea Walter untersucht Chancen und Herausforderungen für Kommunalverwaltung in lokaler Politikgestaltung mit Vereinen und Verbänden am Beispiel einer Fallkommune. Sie illustriert das Rollenverständnis von Kommunalverwaltung sowie die Bedeutung von Interaktionsregeln und des lokalen Kontextes. Auf dieser Basis entwickelt sie ein Modell administrativer Governance. Ihre Befunde ordnet sie in den Kontext lokaler Governance, kooperativen Verwaltungshandelns und Fragen der Legitimation ein. Die Autorin beleuchtet damit eine bislang wenig beachtete Facette von Kommunalverwaltung, die primär als Zuarbeiterin von Politik gilt. Dabei umfasst ein wesentlicher Teil ihrer Arbeit auf lokaler Ebene die Interaktion mit (organisierter) Zivilgesellschaft – in Zeiten knapper Kassen und zunehmender Beteiligungsprozesse gilt dies umso mehr.

Pokerface und Unschuldsmiene Befinden wir uns im Würgegriff unserer Gefühle? Oder vermögen wir unsere Emotionen zu kontrollieren? Spüren wir, wenn wir emotional werden, und spüren wir es rechtzeitig? Wie kündigt sich eine emotionale Reaktion in unserem Inneren an? Und sehen andere, was in uns vorgeht? Verrät uns das Gesicht unseres Gegenübers, was er oder sie gerade empfindet? Interpretieren wir Gefühlsausdrücke richtig? Und wie leicht lassen wir uns täuschen? Können wir lernen, unausgesprochene Gefühle bei uns und bei anderen sensibler wahrzunehmen und in angemessener Weise mit dieser Information umzugehen? So viele Fragen – und so wichtig für unser tägliches Miteinander. Der renommierte Psychologe Paul Ekman entfaltet in diesem Buch ein faszinierendes Panorama der Erkenntnisse aus der Emotions- und Gesichterforschung. Er erläutert, wie Gefühle entstehen und wie sie sich in unserer Mimik äußern. Und er zeigt, wie wir dieses Wissen in unseren zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungen praktisch anwenden können. Damit ist sein Buch beides: eine spannende Reise in ein facettenreiches Forschungsfeld und ein Leitfaden für einen bewussteren Umgang mit den eigenen Gefühlen und den Emotionen anderer. Die 2. Auflage enthält ein zusätzliches Kapitel über "Lügen und Emotionen". Niemand in der Welt hat Gesichtsausdrücke so intensiv untersucht wie Paul Ekman. In Gefühle lesen präsentiert er – klar, lebhaft und leicht zugänglich – seine faszinierenden Beobachtungen über die offenen und versteckten Ausdrücke von Gefühlen, denen wir Tag für Tag Hunderte von Malen begegnen, die wir aber so oft falsch verstehen oder gar nicht wahrnehmen. Seit Darwins Der Ausdruck der Gemütsbewegungen bei den Menschen und den Tieren hat es kein derart breit angelegtes und einsichtsreiches Buch mehr zu diesem Thema gegeben. Oliver Sacks Paul Ekman hat mit Gefühle lesen ein wunderbares Buch vorgelegt, das helfen möchte, Emotionen richtig zu erkennen und zu interpretieren. Gehirn & Geist Paul Ekman, Pionier der Mimikforschung, eröffnet mit seinem neuen Buch Gefühle lesen allen die Chance, Gefühle besser zu verstehen. Hamburger Abendblatt Ein herausragendes Beispiel populärwissenschaftlicher Literatur. New Scientist Gefühle lesen wird jeden Leser emotional intelligenter machen.
