On March 1, 2013 Professor Russell Miller made a presentation at the Nanovic Institute for European Studies at the University of Notre Dame. The event celebrated the publication of his new book “The Constitutional Jurisprudence of the Federal Republic of Germany” (Duke University Press 2012). The book was recognized alongside select publications engaging a broad spectrum of disciplines relevant to European affairs and culture, including: Vittorio Hoelse’s book “The Philosophical Dialogue”; Stepheh Fallon’s book “Paradise Regained – The Complete Shorter Poems by John Milton”; Semion Lyandres’ book “The Fall of Tsarism”; Luc Reydam’s book “International Prosecutors”; and Henry Weinfeld’s book “The Blank-Verse Tradition from Milton to Stevens”. The Nanovic Institute is a platform for more than 140 faculty members and scholars from over twenty-five departments at the University of Notre Dame. Prof. Miller’s co-author, Prof. Donald Kommers, is an emeritus member of the Notre Dame’s Political Science and Law faculties. In his remarks Prof. Miller raised questions about power of the German Constitutional Court and its legitimacy in contemporary Germany’s well-settled democracy.
