When Justinian became sole ruler of the Byzantine Empire in A.D. 527, he ordered the preparation of three compilations of Roman law that together formed the Corpus Juris Civilis. These works have become known individually as the Code, which collected the legal pronouncements of the Roman emperors, the Institutes, an elementary student's textbook, and the Digest, by far the largest and most highly prized of the three compilations. The Digest was assembled by a team of sixteen academic lawyers commissioned by Justinian in 533 to cull everything of value from earlier Roman law. It was for centuries the focal point of legal education in the West and remains today an unprecedented collection of the commentaries of Roman jurists on the civil law. Commissioned by the Commonwealth Fund in 1978, Alan Watson assembled a team of thirty specialists to produce this magisterial translation, which was first completed and published in 1985 with Theodor Mommsen's Latin text of 1878 on facing pages. This paperback edition presents a corrected English-language text alone, with an introduction by Alan Watson. Links to the three other volumes in the set: Volume 1 [Books 1-15] Volume 2 [Books 16-29] Volume 3 [Books 30-40]

Originally published in 1903, this two-volume work contains an English translation of the first fifteen books of the Digest of Justinian, which formed one part of Roman civil law. Monro uses the Latin text edited by Theodor Mommsen, and translates Latin legal terms by using explanatory substitute words, not by giving the nearest approximation of the idea in English law. Volume Two contains the translation of Books Seven to Fifteen. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in late Roman law or the history of law in Europe.

Am Tag, an dem Augustus bestattet wurde, kamen alle öffentlichen und privaten Geschäfte zum Stillstand. Ganz Rom und Hunderttausende von Menschen aus ganz Italien beteiligten sich an den Trauerfeierlichkeiten. Die Leiche wurde auf einem Prunkbett auf den Scheiterhaufen gesetzt. Darüber ruhte, für alle sichtbar, ein aus Wachs gefertigtes Abbild des Toten. Als das Feuer aufloderte, stieg ein Adler in den Himmel – ein Zeichen dafür, daß der Verstorbene zu den Göttern erhoben worden war. Ein Senator bestätigte später unter Eid, er habe die Seele des Verstorbenen zu den Göttern auffahren sehen. Livia, Augustus’ Witwe, belohnte den Zeugen mit einer Million Sesterzen. Wer war dieser Mensch, der damals unter die Götter aufgenommen worden sein soll? Ein Willkürherrscher? Ein Friedensfürst? Ein Neugestalter von Staat, Heer, Gesellschaft und Kultus, kurzum – der Neugestalter der römischen Welt? Werner Eck bietet in seiner fesselnden Biographie Antworten auf diese und viele weitere Fragen zur Machtpolitik des Augustus.

Europa am Abgrund Das europäische zwanzigste Jahrhundert war geprägt von kriegerischen Auseinandersetzungen. Europa erlebte gewaltige Turbulenzen, die Hölle zweier Weltkriege in der ersten Jahrhunderthälfte und tiefgreifende Veränderungen. Der britische Historiker Ian Kershaw erzählt in einem meisterhaften Panorama die Geschichte dieses Kontinents vom Vorabend des Ersten Weltkriegs bis in die Zeit des beginnenden Kalten Kriegs Ende der vierziger Jahre, nachdem die europäische Zivilisation an den Rand der Selbstzerstörung gelangt war. Ethnische Auseinandersetzungen, aggressiver Nationalismus und Gebietsstreitigkeiten, Klassenkonflikte und die tiefe Krise des Kapitalismus waren die treibenden Kräfte, die Kershaw dabei besonders in den Blick nimmt. Neben den großen Entwicklungslinien in Politik, Wirtschaft, Kultur und Gesellschaft schildert er auch immer wieder Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen einzelner, die einen Eindruck geben vom Leben im Europa der ersten Jahrhunderthälfte.

Zum Buch Das Rechtswesen der Römer bildete eine der tragenden Säulen des Imperium Romanum und erlangte schließlich einen so hohen Entwicklungsgrad, daß es in Teilen weit über die Antike hinaus in Geltung blieb. Das Römische Recht prägte nicht nur während des Mittelalters und der Frühen Neuzeit die Rechtsordnungen in vielen Ländern Europas, seine Wirkungsmacht ist vielmehr bis auf den heutigen Tag erkennbar geblieben. Kenntnis und Verständnis dieses überzeitlichen Kulturgutes sind daher nicht nur für den angehenden Juristen, sondern letztlich auch für jeden historisch Interessierten unverzichtbar. Ulrich Manthe hat in dem vorliegenden, ausgezeichnet verständlichen und anregenden Buch die Entwicklung des Römischen Rechts von den frühesten Anfängen bis zur Spätantike beschrieben und erklärt sowie die großen Linien der Rezeptionsgeschichte aufgezeigt. Verweise auf moderne Rechtsnormen veranschaulichen das Nachleben antik-römischer Rechtsgelehrsamkeit.

Die Beiträge des Bandes wollen anhand konkreter Fallbeispiele die grundlegenden Konzepte, Prinzipien und Verfahrensweisen der römischen Herrschaftsorganisation und Administration bzw. deren Schwächen herausarbeiten. Der Fokus liegt zunächst auf Zielen und Strategien der kaiserlichen Politik, wobei die Beiträge Zielsetzung und konkretes Vorgehen der Kaiser für einzelne Bereiche der Innenpolitik beleuchten. Im Anschluss thematisieren die folgenden Studien die Prinzipien staatlichen Handelns; d.h., beleuchtet werden die konkreten Funktionen der Führungsschichten in der Reichs-administration, verschiedene Funktionsträger sowie deren rechtlicher und sozio-politischer Status. Der nächste Teil fokussiert mit dem Amt des Provinzgouverneurs das wichtigste Organ der Provinzialverwaltung. Dabei untersuchen die Beiträge Aufgaben und Arbeitsweise des Statthalters sowie dessen Interaktion mit den Repräsentanten der provinzialen Gemeinden. Den Abschluss bildet die Betrachtung der Rolle und Aufgaben des römischen Heeres, der größten Personalressource des römischen Staates im Rahmen der Provinzialadministration.

The Second Amendment, by far the most controversial amendment to the US Constitution, will soon celebrate its 225th anniversary. Yet, despite the amount of ink spilled over this controversy, the debate continues on into the 21st century. Initially written with a view towards protecting the nascent nation from more powerful enemies and preventing the tyranny experienced during the final years of British rule, the Second Amendment has since become central to discussions about the balance between security and freedom. It features in election contests and informs cultural discussions about race and gender. This book seeks to broaden the discussion. It situates discussion about gun controls within contemporary debates about citizenship, culture, philosophy and foreign policy as well as in the more familiar terrain of politics and history. It features experts on the Constitution as well as chapters discussing the symbolic importance of Annie Oakley, the role of firearms in race, and filmic representations of armed Hispanic girl gangs. It asks about the morality of gun controls and of not imposing them. The collection presents a balanced view between those who favour more gun controls and those who would prefer fewer of them. It is infused with the belief that through honest and open debate the often bitter cultural divide on the Second Amendment can be overcome and real progress made. It contains a diverse range of perspectives including, uniquely, a European perspective on this most American of issues.

Human Rights and Personal Self-Defense in International Law

While an abundance of literature covers the right of states to defend themselves against external aggression, this is the first book dedicated to the right to personal self-defense in international law. Drawing on his extensive experience as a human rights practitioner and scholar, Dr. Hessbruegge sets out in careful detail the strict requirements that human rights impose on defensive force by law enforcement authorities, especially police killings in self-defense. The book also discusses the exceptional application of the right to personal self-defense in military-led operations, notably to contain violent civilians who do not directly participate in hostilities. Human rights also establish parameters on how broad or narrow the laws can be drawn on self-defense between private persons. Setting out the prevailing international standards, the book critically examines the ongoing trend to excessively broaden self-defense laws. It also refutes the claim that there is a human right to possess firearms for self-defense purposes. In extraordinary circumstances, the right to personal self-defence sharpens human rights and allows people to defend themselves against the state. Here the author establishes that international law gives individuals the right to forcibly resist human rights violations that pose a serious risk of significant and irreparable harm. At the same time, he calls into question prevailing state practice, which fails to recognize any collective right to organized armed resistance even when it constitutes the last resort to defend against genocide or other mass atrocities.

The Routledge History of Slavery is a landmark publication that provides an overview of the main themes surrounding the history of slavery from ancient Greece to the present day. Taking stock of the field of Slave Studies, the book explores the major advances that have taken place in the past few decades of study in this crucial field. Offering an unusual, transnational history of slavery, the chapters have all been specially commissioned for the collection. The volume begins by delineating the global nature of the institution of slavery, examining slavery in different parts of the world and over time. Topics covered here include slavery in Africa and the Indian Ocean World, as well as the Transatlantic Slave Trade. In Part Two, the chapters explore different themes that define slavery such as slave culture, the slave economy, slave resistance and the planter class, as well as areas of life affected by slavery, such as family and work. The final part goes on to study changes and continuities over time, looking at areas such as abolition, the aftermath of emancipation and commemoration. The volume concludes with a chapter on modern slavery. Including essays on all the key topics and issues, this important collection from a leading international group of scholars presents a comprehensive survey of the current state of the field. It will be essential reading for all those interested in the history of slavery.
