This acclaimed series serves as a biography of the U.S. Constitution, offering an indispensable survey of the congressional history behind its development. In a rare examination of the role that both the legislative and executive branches have played in the development of constitutional interpretation, The Constitution in Congress shows how the actions and proceedings of these branches reveal perhaps even more about constitutional disputes than Supreme Court decisions of the time. The centerpiece for the fourth volume in this series is the great debate over slavery and how this divisive issue led the country into the maelstrom of the Civil War. From the Jacksonian revolution of 1829 to the secession of Southern states from the Union, legal scholar David P. Currie provides an unrivaled analysis of the significant constitutional events—the Wilmot Proviso, the Compromise of 1850, the Kansas-Nebraska Act, the Lincoln-Douglas Debates, and "Bleeding Kansas"—that led up to the war. Exploring how slavery was addressed in presidential speeches and debated in Congress, Currie shows how the Southern Democrats dangerously diminished federal authority and expanded states' rights, threatening the nation's very survival. Like its predecessors, this fourth volume of The Constitution in Congress will be an invaluable reference for legal scholars and constitutional historians alike.

Leading scholars and legal practitioners explore constitutional, legal, and philosophical topics. In Constitutionalism, Executive Power, and the Spirit of Moderation, contributors ranging from scholars to practitioners in the federal executive and judicial branches blend philosophical and political modes of analysis to examine a variety of constitutional, legal, and philosophical topics. Part 1, “The Role of Courts in Constitutional Democracy,” analyzes the proper functions and limits of the judiciary and judicial decision making in constitutional government. Part 2, “Law and Executive Authority,” reflects on the tensions between constitutionalism and presidential leadership in both domestic and international arenas. Part 3, “Liberal Education, Constitutionalism, and Philosophic Moderation,” shifts the focus to the relationship between constitutionalism and political philosophy, and especially to the modern modes of philosophy that most directly influenced the American Founders. A valuable resource for specialists, the book also will be of use in political science and law school classes.

Die Macht der Psychiatrie

Vorlesungen am Collège de France 1973-1974

Author: Michel Foucault

Publisher: N.A

In Die Macht der Psychiatrie präsentiert Michel Foucault eine Genealogie der modernen Psychiatrie und der spezifischen Wissensformen, die sie hervorgebracht hat. Man kann, so seine These, den Erkenntnissen der Psychiatrie über den Wahnsinn nur dann Rechnung tragen, wenn man sie ausgehend von den Dispositiven und Wissenstechniken analysiert, die die Behandlung der Kranken bestimmen. Foucaults brillante Untersuchung konzentriert sich vor allem auf die Frühzeit der Psychiatrie von Pinel bis Charcot und schließt mit einer Betrachtung der ”Depsychiatrisierung“ des Wahnsinns in den Neurowissenschaften und der Psychoanalyse, die über die Bewegung der Antipsychiatrie bis in die Gegenwart wirkt.
