European Fundamental Rights and Freedoms
The ever increasing relevance of European law which involves replacement or supplementation of and interaction with national law not only affects the states in Europe but also, and foremost, the citizens. The rights of the citizens in Europe are protected by the European Fundamental Rights and Freedoms. The aim of this textbook is to grasp and illustrate the meaning of these rights and to integrate it into a coherent system. For this purpose the book not only deals with the pertinent law of the European Union and the European Community, but also with the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms which, too, is becoming more and more important.
Corpus Iuris Civilis
Reprint of the standard edition of the Corpus Juris Civilis. Originally published: Berlin: Apud Weidmannos, 1895. 3 vols. 8-1/2" x 11." xxxii, 882; xxx, 513; xvi, 810 pp. Originally published from 1872 to 1895 and sometimes called the Berlin Edition, this is one of the finest examples of German philology and legal scholarship. It is the basis for all modern English translations. Commissioned by the Emperor Justinian in 528 CE, the body of writings known collectively as the Corpus Iuris Civilis reformed, restated and preserved early Roman law. Its subsequent influence on European jurisprudence is difficult to underestimate. Commissioned by the Emperor Justinian in 528 CE, the body of writings known collectively as the Corpus Iuris Civilis reformed, restated and preserved Roman law. It has four components: The Code, the reformed legal system, the Institutes, an elementary textbook about the Code, The Digest, an encyclopedia of legal doctrine by classical-era jurists, The Novels, a compilation of laws and amendments subsequent to the Code. It has been said that the Corpus Iuris Civilis is the second most important book in the history of Western civilization after the Bible. While this statement perhaps suffers from slight hyperbole, the intellectual impact of the Justinianic compilation should not be underestimated. In its original guise, it was an attempt to consolidate an unwieldy legal system. It reduced a mass of materials to a single authoritative collection that could be consulted with ease. Whether it was fit for this purpose is unclear, but in time it came to have a fundamental formative influence on the law of Western Europe (and by extension, elsewhere). When it was rediscovered in twelfth-century Italy, it provided the first coherent body of principles that could be taught in the emerging Italian (and later French) universities. The concepts, rules, and terminology of Roman law laid the foundation for the creation first of the Ius Commune in the period 1100-1400 and thereafter for the creation of the national legal families of Western Europe. Even today, the rules and terms of Justinian s compilation exert great influence on modern law. --Paul du Plesssis, The Oxford International Encyclopedia of Legal History 5:155"

The Enforcement of EU Law and Values
It is clear that the current crisis of the EU is not confined to the Eurozone and the EMU, evidenced in its inability to ensure the compliance of Member States to follow the principles and values underlying the integration project in Europe (including the protection of democracy, the Rule of Law, and human rights). This defiance has affected the Union profoundly, and in a multi-faceted assessment of this phenomenon, The Enforcement of EU Law and Values: Ensuring Member States' Compliance, dissects the essence of this crisis, examining its history and offering coping methods for the years to come. Defiance is not a new concept and this volume explores the richness of EU-level and national-level examples of historical defiance – the French Empty Chair policy–, the Luxembourg compromise, and the FPÖ crisis in Austria - and draws on the experience of the US legal system and that of the integration projects on other continents. Building on this legal-political context, the book focuses on the assessment of the adequacy of the enforcement mechanisms whilst learning from EU integration history. Structured in four parts, the volume studies (1) theoretical issues on defiance in the context of multi-layered legal orders, (2) EU mechanisms of acquis and values' enforcement, (3) comparative perspective on law-enforcement in multi-layered legal systems, and (4) case-studies of defiance in the EU.
Architects of the Euro
Who were key figures in the making of European monetary union? Which ideas did they contribute to ensuring that monetary union would be sustainable? How prescient were they in identifying the necessary and sufficient foundations of a sustainable monetary union? This book provides the first systematic historical examination of key architects of European monetary union in the period before its launch in 1999. Using original archival and interview research, it investigates the intellectual and career backgrounds of these architects, their networking skills, and their own doubts and reservations about the way in which monetary union was being constructed. In the light of the later Euro Area, Architects of the Euro deals critically with not just their contribution to the making of European monetary union but also their legacy. The book brings together a distinguished group of scholars working on the history of Economic and Monetary Union.
Soldiers of Salamis
In the final moments of the Spanish Civil War, fifty prominent Nationalist prisoners are executed by firing squad. Among them is the writer and fascist Rafael Sanchez Mazas. As the guns fire, he escapes into the forest, and can hear a search party and their dogs hunting him down. The branches move and he finds himself looking into the eyes of a militiaman, and faces death for the second time that day. But the unknown soldier simply turns and walks away. Sanchez Mazas becomes a national hero and the soldier disappears into history. As Cercas sifts the evidence to establish what happened, he realises that the true hero may not be Sanchez Mazas at all, but the soldier who chose not to shoot him. Who was he? Why did he spare him? And might he still be alive?
