List of Subjects
Tax Management 2006.
Designed as a tool for those working in the field of estate planning, this entry in BNA's Tax Management Portfolios revises, supersedes and replaces an earlier edition of the same title. As noted in the portfolio description, this estate planning tool focuses primarily on the period prior to the year 2010. This volume, intended to provide a working overview of the essential concepts involved in estate planning, describes those concepts in a manner that is both thorough and clear. Navagating the volume is simplified by the addition of a detailed table of contents.
The conventional view of German criminal law during the time of Kaiser Wilhelm is one of a rigid, authoritarian system forshadowing the Nazi legal system. However Hett's volume, which draws on previously unused sources, paints a different story. Hett examines how the law reflected and was influenced by the broader urban culture and politics of Berlin during a time of rapid change. Examining the pressures of the popular press on a legal system which was dealing with a recently unified nationalized court system, penal code and law of criminal procedure, Hett contests that judges did not merely dismiss demands for procedural justice out of hand, but were beginning to assert their independent authority.
