David Dyzenhaus is an Associate Professor of Law and Philosophy at the University of Toronto.Review:
`Dyzenhaus's ... reflections on Schmitt's constitutional position are nuanced and insightful. ... This book also deserves broad attention because of the way in which it relocates Hermann Heller at the centre-stage of Weimar political debate. ... shows a breadth of historical and sociological
knowledge which is unusual amongst legal theorists and historians ...'

`The subtle contours ... will repay careful and sustained reading ... scholarly and well written ... a powerful antidote to the sad apologetics still being pandered by those who have sought to promote the work of one of fascism's most intelligent theorists.'
