Donald P. Kommers, The Grundgesetz: An American Perspective, in Konflikt Der Rechtskulturen? Die USA Und Deutschland Im Vergleich 37 (Knud Krakow & Franz Streng eds., 2003)

The volume's contributions look at the legal system of the United States of America as part of the overall national culture, compare it with the corresponding German ideas, and analyze it in a number of key aspects. The respective basic issue is, above all, the respective weighting of freedom and equality, as well as the resulting constitutional orders. Other issues include the relationship between national, international and global law; the impact of racial and gender prejudice on case law, especially in the case of the death penalty; juvenile justice and the consequences of a zero tolerance policy; the right to damages and the relationship between law, the media and the public.
