With his »General Theory of the State,« Hans Kelsen joined the ranks of those who were part of a specifically German tradition, but this work was radically new and different compared to other general theories of the state. Not only did the book serve as a prelude to the so-called »Weimar Debate« on the future of German public law and the methodology of its scholarship, it is also the first cohesive portrayal of the »Pure Theory of Law.«
