India has a parliamentary system. Yet the president has authority to occasionally enact legislation (or ordinances) without involving parliament. This book is a study of ordinances at the national level in India, centred around three themes. First, it tells the story of how an artefact of British constitutional history, over time, became part of India's legislative system. Second, it offers an empirical account of the ways in which presidents have resorted to ordinances in post-independence India. Third, the book analyses a range of ordinance-related questions, including some that are yet to be judicially adjudicated. In the process, the book explains why much of India's Supreme Court's jurisprudence is mistaken, and what should take its place. Overall, the book explains why the fate of parliamentary reforms in India may be tied to the reform of this provision for ordinances. Standing at the intersection of constitutional law and political science, Presidential Legislation in India offers a new frame through which to assess executive's legislative powers both in parliamentary and presidential systems.

"The Bitter Bierce". Siegeszug der zynischen Vernunft Der amerikanische Schriftsteller Ambrose Bierce (1842-Weihnachten/Neujahr 1913/14) hatte nicht nur eine scharfe Zunge, sondern auch eine spitze Feder. Er war einer der schillerndsten Gestalten im literarischen Amerika des 19. Jahrhunderts - die personifizierte Provokation und ein gehässiger Zyniker, der kein Thema ausließ. Ganz gleich, ob es um allgemeine, kleine oder große Schwächen des Menschengeschlechts ging - seinem Hohn war nichts heilig. Berühmt wurde er mit seinem "Wörterbuch des Teufels", einer Sammlung galliger und pointiert-geistreicher Aphorismen.

Alles von Aphrodite bis Zarathustra Mythologie ist spannender als jeder Krimi, grausamer als jeder Horrorfilm und leidenschaftlicher als jeder Liebesroman. Aber wie hieß noch gleich der Meeresgott der Griechen? Was geschah bei der Götterdämmerung? Und wer gehörte zu König Artus‘ Tafelrunde? Antworten auf diese und viele weitere Fragen finden Sie in diesem Buch, das zum Schmökern einlädt und wunderbar als Nachschlagewerk dient. Neben der griechischen und römischen Mythologie erfahren Sie alles Wissenswerte zu den nordischen Sagen wie den Nibelungen und Beowulf, zu Mythen aus Ägypten und Asien sowie zu den Erzählungen der Inka, Maya und Azteken.
