The task of parting with injustice still dominates today's study of contemporary legal history following the end of World War II. This volume offers 19 studies in three sections covering appraisal, methodological and constitutional change as well as alternatives, wherein philosophy and history of science and methodology, general and legal history are all put into context. Rather than stressing once more the political use of the past in general and legal history, the book seeks to raise awareness and free them from their political shackles.
