Book Chapter

Donald P. Kommers, The Federal Constitutional Court in the West German Political System, in Frontiers of Judicial Research 73 (Joel Grossman & Joseph Tanenhaus eds., 1969).

No view of the West German political system is complete without taking into account the role of the Federal Constitutional Court in the total competitive process of authoritative decision making. This role is largely determined by the place assigned the Court in the political system by the Basic Law of the Federal Republic and by the nature of the recruitment process. It is limited by the Court's structure, together with its internal processes of decision making and the political environment in which it functions. My purpose here is to discuss each of these factors and then to link them with selected aspects of the Court's policy-output.
