Over the past two decades the interdisciplinary research and
teaching field "Law and the Humanities" has established itself,
especially at American universities. It provides new approaches to
legal systems from the perspective of various disciplines of the
humanities and places relations and connections within a cultural
context. Based on this interdisciplinary approach, this volume
offers contributions to a whole variety of U.S. legal issues - from
the birth of the Constitution to tort law and criminal justice.
From their perspective of the Austrian legal system, legal scholars
deal with various aspects of legal theory and practice while
"Americanists" analyze characteristics of this legal system in
their cultural context, drawing on historical documents as well as
on literature and film. The book presents an exciting European
perspective on this transatlantic legal complexity upon the
background of its culture and history.
