European legal history scholar Michael Stolleis examines the evolution of legal history, theory, and practice in Nazi Germany, paying close attention to its impact on the German republic and its legal profession. Breaking the conspiracy of silence held in the postwar period by justices left over from the Nazi era, Stolleis stresses the importance of researching Nazi law in order to confront ethical problems in today's legal profession.
