This long needed reference on the innumerable and increasing ways that the law intersects with translation and interpreting features essays by scholars and professions from the United States, Australia, Hong Kong, Iceland, Israel, Japan, and Sweden. The essays range from sophisticated treatments of historical and hence philosophical variations in concept and practice to detailed practical advice on self-education. Essays show a particular concern for the challenges of courtroom discourse when the parties not only use different languages but operate from different cultural and legal traditions.

English summary: Since 1997/98 in particular, the traditional British constitutional system has been undergoing extensive reforms which affect the core of the constitution. Gernot Sydow studies the structural principles of this process of constitutional reform from a German point of view. He reconstructs the current constitutional debates in Great Britain, seeing them as the sum of sovereignty and legitimacy conflicts which have not been discussed and settled. According to the author, the constitutional reforms in Britain are gradually being brought into line with the constitutional traditions in continental Europe. European influences, however, appear to function as catalysts which are speeding up the process of British constitutional reforms rather than as decisive reasons for reform. German description: Die uberkommene britische Verfassungsordnung ist insbesondere seit 1997/98 Gegenstand weitreichender Reformen, die die Verfassung in ihrem Kern beruhren. Gernot Sydow arbeitet ubergreifende Strukturprinzipien dieses Verfassungsreformprozesses heraus und konstatiert eine allmahliche Ablosung der uberkommenen politischen Verfassungsordnung durch eine rechtsnormative Verfassung. Er rekonstruiert die gegenwartigen verfassungsrechtlichen Auseinandersetzungen in Grossbritannien als Summe nicht ausgetragener Souveranitats- und Legitimitatskonflikte: zwischen Westminster Parliament und Common-Law-Gerichten, zwischen Parlamentsgesetzen und common law, zwischen Parlamentssuprematie und rule of law, zwischen nationaler Souveranitat und europaischer Integration. Der Autor stellt die These auf, dass die britischen Verfassungsreformen eine gewisse Annaherung an kontinentaleuropaische Verfassungstraditionen bewirken, dass sie aber nicht primar europaische Einflusse verarbeiten. Soweit europaische Einflusse zu konstatieren sind, wirken sie als Katalysatoren, die den britischen Verfassungsreformprozess beschleunigen. Zentrale Verfassungsreformen mussen aber aus dem common law und der historisch gewachsenen britischen Verfassungsordnung selber erklart werden.

Feminist scholars have long been concerned with how women and sexuality are perceived and treated by the American legal system. Feminists have put forth a variety of arguments seeking the causes and solutions to the class-based and sex-biased characteristics of the legal system that contribute to the victimization of women in contemporary society. No consensus within the women's movement has been achieved on a number of legal issues, such as pornography or prostitution, since approaches are often divided by political, economic, moral, or sexual ideology.Women, Sex, and the Law is a comprehensive survey and analysis of the legal and sexual issues important to women. Rosemarie Tong introduces the reader to the different feminist and legal perspectives on the causes and solutions for the problems of pornography, sexual harassment, prostitution, rape, and woman-battering. Tong clearly and concisely details and assesses the legal theory and practice for each issue, describs and critiques the various feminist debates surrounding these concerns, and offers her own thoughtful proposals for ameliorating the discriminatory tendencies and improving the effectiveness of our present legal system.
