        Vom Wesen und Wert der Demokratie.

      Tübingen, 1920. 8vo. Cont. blue half cloth w. a bit of wear to spine and loss of gilt lettering. Internally fine. 38, (1, -advertisement) pp.. First edition, off-print, of Kelsen's book on democracy, which not only provides invaluable insight into the conception of political morality that underpins the most important legal theory of the 20th century, but which also constitutes a significant contribution to the literature on democracy as well as a fascinating contribution to the reception of democracy in modern legal and political thought. Kelsen wrote the book in the aftermath of the First World War which had brought about the advent of mass democracy in many European countries. The book is thus one of the first attempts to come to terms with this new form of organizing and exercising social power. The theory of democracy which Kelsen articulates must be understood in the light of the 19th century German theory of state. At the same time, Kelsen stands apart from this tradition by being the first to recognize that, within a democracy, the parliament is the essential political forum, whereas earlier theory of state had defined the parliament as on organ of state, not of the people, hence stripping it of political significance. The willingness with which Kelsen embraced democracy is intimately connected to his famous pure theory of law. The ethics of democracy - which Kelsen shall describe as "political relativism" - is central to his affirmation of the independence of law from political power. The book is thus an indispensable analytical tool for anyone interested in understanding the interaction of law and power in modern society
