This book presents arguments and proposals for constraining criminalization, with a focus on the legal limits of the criminal law. The book approaches the issue by showing how the moral criteria for constraining unjust criminalization can and has been incorporated into constitutional human rights and thus provides a legal right not to be unfairly criminalized. The book sets out the constitutional limits of the substantive criminal law. As far as specific constitutional rights operate to protect specific freedoms, for example, free speech, freedom of religion, privacy, etc, the right not to be criminalized has proved to be a rather powerful justice constraint in the U.S. Yet the general right not to be criminalized has not been fully embraced in either the U.S. or Europe, although it does exist. This volume lays out the legal foundations of that right and the criteria for determining when the state might override it. The book will be of interest to researchers in the areas of legal philosophy, criminal law, constitutional law, and criminology.

The third book in the Criminalization series examines the constitutionalization of criminal law. It considers how the criminal law is constituted through the political processes of the state; how the agents of the criminal law can be answerable to it themselves; and finally, how the criminal law can be constituted as part of the international order. Addressing the ways in which and the grounds on which types of conduct can be justifiably criminalized, the first four chapters of this volume focus on the questions that arise from a consideration of the political constitution of the criminal law. The contributors then turn their attention to the role of the state, its institutions and officials, and their role not only as creators, enactors, interpreters, and enforcers of the criminal law, but also as subjects of it. How can the agents of the criminal law also be answerable to it? Finally discussion turns to how the criminal law can be constituted as part of an international order. Examining the relationships between domestic laws of different nation-states, and between domestic criminal law and international or transnational law, the chapters also look at the authority and jurisdiction of international criminal law itself, and its relationship to other dimensions of the international order. A vital examination of one of the most important topics in modern criminal legal theory, this volume raises new questions central to the study of the criminal law and offers new suggestions for addressing them.

Mit einem Nachwort von Heinz Drügh und Christian Metz. Mit dem Autorenporträt aus dem Metzler Lexikon Weltliteratur. Mit Daten zu Leben und Werk. Erzählen als Experiment Als »Miniatur-Meisterwerke des Expressionismus« und »moderne Märchen« hat man Döblins frühe Erzählungen bezeichnet. Am berühmtesten wurde seine Erzählung ›Die Ermordung einer Butterblume‹, die bis heute neben Schnitzlers ›Leutnant Gustl‹ oder Kafkas ›Urteil‹ als einer der Schlüsseltexte der Moderne gilt. Diese Neuedition enthält sämtliche Texte der zu Döblins Lebzeiten publizierten Erzählungsbände, außerdem eine umfangreiche Auswahl einzelner Erzählungen aus den Jahren 1896 bis 1953. Zu entdecken sind dabei einige der schönsten und experimentierfreudigsten Prosatexte der deutschen Literatur, die völlig zu Unrecht im Schatten von ›Berlin Alexanderplatz‹ stehen.
