The Defence of Constitutionalism : the Czech Question in Post-national Europe by Jiří Přibáň( )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and Czech and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than a century after the publication of Czech politician Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk’s study The Czech Question, Czech politics has become a pragmatic question of democratic constitutionalism and civility. Originally published in major Czech newspapers, these essays on contemporary European politics demonstrate that this new understanding involves both technical questions of power-making and critical questions of its meaning. Democracy, Jirí Pribán shows, is the proces of permanent self-correction. It possesses both the capacity to respond to unexpected problems and crises and intrinsic tensions between principled arguments and everyday administrative processes. Defending constitutionalism, therefore, draws on principles of civil rights and freedoms, limited government, and representative democracy, the validity and persuasive force of which are at stake not only in the Czech Republic, but also in the European Union and our global society at large. --
Legal symbolism : on law, time and European identity by Jiří Přibáň( )

20 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book contributes to the field of systems theory of law in the context of European legal and political integration and constitution-making. It puts recent European legislative efforts and policies, especially the EU enlargement process, in the context of legal theory and philosophy, showing that the system of positive law has a symbolic meaning, reflecting as it does the semantics of political identity, democratic power and moral values as well as the complex relations between law, politics and morality."--Jacket

Dissidents of law : on the 1989 velvet revolutions, legitimations, fictions of legality, and contemporary version of the social contract by Jiří Přibáň( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2019 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title was first published in 2003: The problem of legitimacy and legality is one of the key issues of modern thought and nowhere more intensely debated than in the countries of the former Soviet bloc. Under the communist system, symbols of modern government had been supplemented and changed in order to serve the totalitarian domination of the Party and all spheres of life, including law, were subsumed within this framework of ideological legitimation. Following the anti-communist revolutions of 1989, former communist societies started the historically unprecedented process of transformation from the totalitarian into liberal democratic society, a transformation which has produced much soul-searching and heated debate. In this book, the author sets out to prove that concern with legitimacy belongs neither exclusively to the legal system nor to a political system separated and distanced from the legal system. The topic of legitimacy and legitimation is inseparable from legality and every legitimation eventually looks for its transformation into legal legitimacy

8 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Systems of justice in transition : Central European experiences since 1989 by James Young( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book was published in 2003. Drawing upon work from contributors who are judges, governmental officials or academics, from five countries in Central Europe - the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia, this collection provides a cohesive analysis of the emerging systems of justice in the region. The principal goal was to examine how systems of justice have adapted to post-Communist liberal democratic conditions and this is accomplished by examining three topics: the constitutional systems, styles of judicial reasoning and theories of decision-making, and the judiciary as a profession."--Provided by publisher
Sovereignty in post-sovereign society : a systems theory of European constitutionalism by Jiří Přibáň( Book )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sovereignty marks the boundary between politics and law. Highlighting the legal context of politics and the political context of law, it thus contributes to the internal dynamics of both political and legal systems. This book comprehends the persistence of sovereignty as a political and juridical concept in the post-sovereign social condition. The tension and paradoxical relationship between the semantics and structures of sovereignty and post-sovereignty are addressed by using the conceptual framework of the autopoietic social systems theory. Using a number of contemporary European examples, developments and paradoxes, the author examines topics of immense interest and importance relating to the concept of sovereignty in a globalising world. The study argues that the modern question of sovereignty permanently oscillating between de iure authority and de facto power cannot be discarded by theories of supranational and transnational globalized law and politics. Criticising quasi-theological conceptualizations of political sovereignty and its juridical form, the study reformulates the concept of sovereignty and its persistence as part of the self-referential communication of the systems of positive law and politics. The book will be of considerable interest to academics and researchers in political, legal and social theory and philosophy
Self-constitution of European society : beyond EU politics, law and governance by Jiří Přibáň( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent social and political developments in the EU have clearly shown the profound structural changes in European society and its politics. Reflecting on these developments and responding to the existing body of academic literature and scholarship, this book critically discusses the emerging notion of European constitutionalism, its varieties and different contextualization in theories of EU law, general jurisprudence, sociology of law, political theory and sociology. The contributors address different problems related to the relationship between the constitutional state and non-state constitutionalizations and critically analyze general theories of constitutional monism, dualism and pluralism and their juridical and political uses in the context of EU constitutionalism. Individual chapters emphasize the importance of interdisciplinary and socio-legal methods in the current research of EU constitutionalism and their potential to re-conceptualize and re-think traditional problems of constitutional subjects, limitation and separation of power, political symbolism and identity politics in Europe. This collection simultaneously describes the EU and its self-constitution as one polity, differentiated society and shared community and its contributors conceptualize the sense of common identity and solidarity in the context of the post-sovereign multitude of European society."--Back cover
Pictures of Czech postmoderism by Jiří Přibáň( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in Czech and English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this book deal with those who currently figure among the most important Czech artists and whose work is internationally recognized. Most of them entered the art scene in the late 1980s on the crest of a powerful generational wave known as Czech postmodernism. Although this artistic drive ran parallel to revolutionary changes in Central and Eastern Europe, it would be grossly simplistic and misleading to view Czech postmodernism as a by-product of the disintegration of Communist regimes and exposure to the effects of West European culture. In fact, the story of Czech postmodernism is unique evidence that, in diverse social and political contexts, artists ultimately address issues of a general nature beyond politics and ideology
