about

Wilhelm Hennis has been a leading critic of German political life and thought for the last fifty years. In this selection from his writings on government, constitutionality, and legitimacy he shows how the postwar reconstruction of democratic politics in Germany quickly highlighted general problems of party politics and democratic order that have only recently been widely recognized. In so doing he eschews the conventional terminology of the social sciences, and builds his analysis of modern politics on a classical language of law and politics.
