Beiträge zur Rechtsgeschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts

[Contributions to the History of Law in the 20th Century]
Twenty years after it was founded in 1988, this series has seen the publication of 60 volumes. Owing to its receptiveness to various methodologies and subjects, it has become firmly established as an important forum for research on the law and legal policies in the 20th century. Those works accepted for publication dealt with the history of civil and criminal law, with public law and social law, the history of jurisprudence and the judiciary. It was inevitable that the main emphasis was on the injustice and the law of National Socialism to begin with, but this was soon followed by the commercial law and labor law of the Weimar Republic and then the main legal issues in both German states during the post-war era. Numerous studies of the life and works of influential legal scholars contributed to the history of jurisprudence.
The editors are all firmly convinced that it is essential to offer strong support and encouragement to those writing about the history of the law in the 20th and 21st centuries, since this has a present-day relevance and is indispensable for research and education.
