  • The Role of Legal Translation in Legal Harmonization/Buch

    …Wildy's are selling The Role of Legal Translation in Legal Harmonization, edited by C.J.W. Baaij. I'm glad to see the alternative spelling, as I fear the EU Style Guide is trying to force us all to write 'harmonisation' - even in Alicante they have abandoned their hold-out. There are nine contributors. I can't find out much about it, but it must…

  • Books and bookshop/Bücher und Buchhandlung

    …1. Fabio Said recommends Five Great Books on German Legal Terminology. I particularly recommend the first two: Ulrich Daum's Gerichts- und Behördenterminologie, and Corinna Schlüter-Ellner's Juristendeutsch verständlich gemacht/Treffende Verben in der deutschen Rechtssprache. The former is a book I discovered when I was doing the Bavarian state…

  • Oxford Handbook of Language and Law

    … at the titles, I see that most of them deal with jurisdictions with one legal system and more than one language. I don't know about Susan Sarkevic, I just know that her book (New Approach to Legal Translation) had a lot of stuff on that kind of 'translation' of legislation. This is the - outdated - list on Peter Tiersma's site: III. Multilingualism…

  • Schweitzer International Bookstore

    …Have I recommended the Schweitzer legal bookshop in Munich before? I've only been once and they had an eclectic selection of law books in English in the basement. Don't know if that's still the case. More interesting was a list of books, for example German law in English, which I got hold of years ago. What I didn't realize is that its successor…

  • Hitler's talking dogs/Hitlers sprechende Hunde

    …I suppose in view of the earnestness of German alsatian owners' societies I should not be surprised. Maureen Dowd in the New York Times: A new book, “Amazing Dogs,” by Dr. Jan Bondeson, a senior lecturer at Cardiff University School of Medicine in Wales, reveals that Hitler supported a German school that tried to teach large, muscular…

  • Light summer reading/Sommerlektüre

    … In Heidegger's case, the question of how to read him may be of less immediate interest than the question 'Why read Heidegger?' Of those who have heard something about him, many dismiss him as an unrepentant ex-Nazi, pompous and mystical, more sophist than philosopher, anti-modernist and irrationalist, given to asking obscure questions like…

    … cruelly pinching the toes and fingers of his shivering little 'prentice boy on deck. Chance people on the bridges peeping over the parapets into a nether sky of fog, with fog all round them, as if they were up in a balloon and hanging in the misty clouds.
