German Law in English – A select bibliography

This bibliography was compiled by Klaus Radke and Axel Tiemann (1st edition 1987) and updated by Gereon Thiele, Nikolaus Herrmann and Gerhard Dannemann (2nd edition 1993). Both editions were published by the German Academic Exchange Service, but have been out of print for some time.

It is intended that this bibliography will be replaced, and updates published on this website, in a joint project between the German Academic Exchange Service and the German Law Archive.
