Horst Dreier compiles a profile of such a state by explaining its concepts and analyzing its main framework. He also discusses some controversial issues surrounding it.
What exactly are the distinguishing characteristics of a modern and democratic constitutional state, as embodied in, for example, German Basic Law? Horst Dreier compiles a profile of such a state by explaining its concepts and analyzing its main framework. Within this context, he also discusses some controversial issues which have been heavily debated over the past years, such as pro-life concerns in bio-ethical discussions, the criminal liability of Berlin Wall marksmen and the relevance of constitutional final provisions. As a whole, the book attempts to provide a portrait of the modern constitution in its idea and form that is as multi-faceted as it is sharply contoured – inclusive of its risks and dangers.
